Morningside Lights

September 30, 8 pm.
Manhattan Morningside Lights

Morningside Lights returns with The Open Book, a celebration of the free exchange of ideas and an homage to the libraries that preserve access to knowledge and affirm our freedom to read. Presented in partnership with the Columbia University Libraries and The New York Public Library, each of the 50+ community-built lanterns will pay tribute to a book that inspires, enlightens, and shapes how we see the world.  Come out after dusk to witness a luminous catalogue of “Great Books” where each glowing volume will honor a unique perspective, while renewing our collective resolve to keep our libraries free and our minds open.
