Peter C. Goldmark, Jr. Talks About His and Daughter Sandra’s New Book, “Haikus for New York City,” a Love Letter to the City
Time & Location
Feb 14, 12:00 PM – 2:00 PM EST
3 West Club, 3 W 51st St, New York, NY 10019, USA
SPEAKER: PETER C. GOLDMARK, JR.
In the worlds of environmentalism, philanthropy, government and public service, Goldmark is a renowned presence. He has served in high visibility roles in Gov. Carey’s 1975 NY State rescue of NY City in its financial crisis, served as CEO of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, the Rockefeller Foundation, and the International Herald Tribune. He has served on boards of directors including Harvard.
At age 40, he was drawn into the very private world of writing Haikus, wanting to better understand himself and the world he was in. Their “Haikus for New York City” is beautifully illustrated with drawings by his daughter Sandra Goldmark, a professor at Barnard. The Haikus in their 17 syllables are short and sharp, lovely and pungent in their delicacy and beauty, with the public man behind them only imperfectly visible.
ENTERTAINER: CELIA BERK
CELIA BERK is an award-winning vocalist whose latest album is the critically acclaimed NOW THAT I HAVE EVERYTHING. It explores the ways we try – successfully and not – to connect our heart to someone else’s. The music, from the Great American Songbook, includes the kinds of hidden gems by great songwriters that are Celia’s trademark. Arranged in the style of the Nat King Cole Trio, she will be celebrating its release with a special live performance at 54 Below on April 18 at 7pm. She will be joined by the album musicians, including arranger/pianist Tedd Firth. More at CeliaBerk.com and Facebook/Instagram/Twitter/YouTube: CeliaBerkMusic
