This blog is from Gabriel Sanders, our director of Public Programs, who apparently will not be spending his summer in the Hamptons. In an age of October snowstorms and unusually early springs, it’s tough to know what to do with old sayings like “April showers bring May flowers.” Be that as it may, the Museum’s May-June calendar is certainly in full bloom. Tonight, May 2, NYU historian Edward Berenson will be discussing his new book, The Statue of Liberty: A Transatlantic Story—in a room overlooking Lady Liberty herself. On May 6, the PEN World Voices Festival returns to the Museum with an all-star panel of writers (Michael Cunningham, Deborah Eisenberg, Daniel Kehlmann, and Edmund White) to discuss the late Gregor von Rezzori’s Bukovina Trilogy.
