The beloved New Yorker staff writer Adam Gopnik presents a one-man show of stories from his 30 years as a husband, father and writer in New York City. Many of these stories are featured in his new book, At the Strangers’ Gate: Arrivals in New York. He first performed this one-man show at last year’s New Yorker Festival.

Directed by the Moth’s Catherine Burns. A book signing will follow.

Gopnik has been writing for The New Yorker since 1986. His books include the essay collections Paris to the Moon, Through the Children’s Gate, and Winter: Five Windows on the Season; the children’s novels The King in the Window and The Steps Across the Water; and a book about cooking and eating, The Table Comes First: Family, France, and the Meaning of Food.  He has received three National Magazine Awards and the George Polk Award for magazine writing.
