New York Public Library Pizza Events


Things got intense during a Science of Pizza event at an event in the Bronx!

I’m super excited to be running a series of programs at NYPL branches around the city over the next few months. Every HISTORY program will feature a live interview with a pizza maker local to the host branch. We’ll talk all about the past, present and future of pizza in NYC and beyond! SCIENCE programs involve live demonstrations of pizza from raw materials to ingredients to finished product. HISTORY events are designed for all ages and SCIENCE events are more geared toward younger folk.

I’ll be posting more specifics about each event on Twitter, so be sure to stay in the loop!
