Leonard’s most recent project for New York’s Bard Graduate Center (18 West 86th Street, New York, NY) was a public program about New York-themed children’s books, presented in conjunction with the Bard Gallery’s popular spring/summer 2017 exhibition “New York Crystal Palace 1853.”

Given the great outpouring of books for children and teens with New York settings and stories and the current renaissance in young people’s biography, there were many worthwhile books to highlight for introducing young readers of today to the artistry and inventiveness that the Crystal Palace–19th-century New York’s cultural coming-of-age party—boldly put on display for the world to see.

Oh, and yes, free ice cream was served to all comers.
