The public is invited to a book talk by Sunny Stalter-Pace, author of Underground Movements: Modern Culture on the New York City Subway on Wednesday, March 19 at 4:00 p.m. at Pebble  Hill.

For more than a century the New York City subway system has been a vital part of the city’s identity, even as judgments of its value have varied. It has been celebrated as the technological embodiment of the American melting pot and reviled as a blighted urban netherworld. Underground Movements explores the many meanings of the subway by looking back at the era when it first ascended to cultural prominence, from its opening in 1904 through the mid-1960s.

Stalter-Pace is an Assistant Professor in the Department of English at Auburn University. She received her PhD from Rutgers University and her BA from Loyola University Chicago.

The event is free, open to the public, and will be followed by refreshments.

Pebble Hill is located at 101 S. Debardeleben Street and is home to the Caroline Marshall Center for the Arts & Humanities in the College of Liberal Arts.
