Book launch: John Freeman Gill presents The Gargoyle Hunters
In conversation with Liesl Schillinger
Wine reception to follow
Native New Yorker John Freeman Gill is a longtime New York Times contributor and the architecture and real estate editor of Avenue magazine, for which he writes “Edifice Complex,” a monthly column exploring the biographies of historic New York City buildings and their occupants. His debut novel The Gargoyle Hunters revolves around the mystery of a brazen and seemingly impossible architectural heist—the theft of an entire historic Manhattan building—that stunned the city in 1974. Hilarious and poignant, the novel is a love letter to a vanishing city, as well as a deeply emotional story of fathers and sons. John discusses his work with New York Times book critic Liesl Schillinger, followed by a wine reception to celebrate the book's launch.
