LIVE from NYPL's happy hours on the terrace at the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Library (SNFL) take place on select Fridays. Drop in for drinks, mingling, crafts, and more.

In September, we are proud to partner with Subway Book Review and its creator, Uli Beutter Cohen—author of Between the Lines: Stories from the Underground—the remarkable result of nearly a decade of documenting, interviewing, and photographing some of the subway's most imaginative people: the readers of books! 

Join us at any point between 5:30–7:30 PM. Enjoy wine and beer for sale plus snacks, coffee, and other treats from our friends at Amy's Bread.

Co-presented with Subway Book Review.
