Digital Discussion - Book Talk: 'Speed My Way Up'

Wednesday December 9

6:00 PM  –  7:00 PM

Through the eyes of the characters in her 2018 book, Speed My Way Up: Selected Stories, local author Kristin Pitanza paints a vivid picture of life on Staten Island. Using the island’s transit system as a backdrop in one of her four short fiction stories, Pitanza shows how life on Staten Island changed over the four decades following the opening of the Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge in 1964.
