Kevin Fitzpatrick, author of World War I New York: A Guide to the City’s Enduring Ties to the Great War

Book signing after the program


What role did New York play during World War I? Join author Kevin Fitzpatrick to learn about the city during the war and the memorials created afterward to remember those who sacrificed. Using material from his book, Fitzpatrick will show you where General John J. Pershing departed for Europe, where bond rallies were held, and the studios where artists created wartime posters. See images of some of the beautiful and iconic memorials, monuments, and tributes that communities and bereaved family members erected in the years after the war.
