A New York Christmas – Ho Ho Ho at Gothamtide

December 14 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

A New York Christmas – Ho Ho Ho at Gothamtide

Celebrate the holiday season with Sibyl McCormack Groff, author and historian, who is known locally as “Queen Santa,” as she demonstrates the importance of New York as the Christmas Capital. She explores places to visit during Gothamtide, with its hidden treasures and delectable treats.

 

This talk reveals the diversity of the holiday season with anecdotes and stories, while exploring the holiday traditions of the diverse cultures that created this multi-cultural metropolis, which she discovered during the research for her newly released book, A New York Christmas: HoHoHo at Gothamtide!

 

A reception will be held before the lecture at 6:00 p.m., with the lecture starting promptly at 6:45 p.m.
Lectures are partially sponsored by generous gifts from Christopher Broadwell and Lewis I. Haber
