Event Details

New York Times bestselling author, Fiona Davis joins us to discuss her new book, The Spectacular. She invites readers behind the shimmering gold curtain of one of the most famous stages in the world, Radio City Music Hall, as a talented young dancer in the 1950s defies society’s (and her family’s) expectations when she joins the glamorous precision-dancing troupe, the Rockettes. At the same time, a mysterious madman is terrorizing New York City by leaving explosives in some of the Big Apple’s busiest locations; Radio City among them.
