Reading/Discussion with John Freeman Gill (1)
When: Thursday, Nov 16, 2017 - 7:30 PM to 9:00 PM

John Freeman GillThe New York Times contributor, is the author of the debut novel The Gargoyle Hunters (2017), a Barnes & Noble “Discover Great New Writers Pick.” A deeply emotional story of a father and son and the obsession that drives their relationship, the novel solves the mystery of a brazen and seemingly impossible architectural heist. In a review of the book author Colum McCann said Gill “strips the mask off New York City in this poignant, incisive, irreverent novel about fatherhood, art, obsession, creation, and destruction. … a wonderful, compelling debut.” Gill, an expert on historical architecture, writes “Edifice Complex,” a monthly column in Avenue that explores the biographies of historic New York City buildings and their occupants.

John Freeman Gill’s presentation is a featured public event of the University at Albany History Department’s annual Researching New York Conference and is cosponsored by the New York State Writers Institute.
