New York Public Library, South Court Auditorium

5th Ave. & 42nd St.
New York, NY - New York 10018
On Tuesday, September 15th, from 6:00 to 7:30 pm, Michael Benson -- photographer, filmmaker, and writer -- will speak about his highly acclaimed and breathtaking book Cosmigraphics: Picturing Space Through Time (Abrams, 2014), a work so significant it was featured on the front page of The New York Times upon its publication. In Cosmigraphics, Benson presents several hundred images -- scientific, religious, and artistic -- showing how people have depicted and perceived outer space over a period of 4,000 years. The lecture, sponsored jointly by the New York Map Society and The New York Public Library, will be held in the South Court Auditorium at the New York Public Library's Stephen A. Schwarzman Building on 42nd St. and 5th Ave. Books will be available for purchase, and Benson will sign books after his talk.
