New Yorker Discussion Group
6:30 p.m.
Online via Zoom

Maybe you already have a subscription but only consistently glance at the cartoons? Or perhaps you yearn for in-depth reporting, written well without the prefab soundbites of TV news? Or you might just like to “meet up” with interesting individuals to talk about current events and upcoming museum exhibits worth a look while in the comfort of your own home. If so, the list of the articles to be discussed is below. Contact us at library@rowayton.org if you don’t subscribe to your own copy of the magazine and we can help. Register here.
