PAUL GOLDBERGER, Architectural Critic, Author
Goldberger talks about his new book, Ballpark: Baseball in the American City
Goldberger is a Pulitzer Prize winning architectural critic and educator, and a Contributing Editor for Vanity Fair magazine. In his new book, Ballpark: Baseball in the American City, he takes an exhilarating new look at the history of baseball, told through the stories of the vibrant and ever-changing ballparks where the game was and is staged. He examines how the site details and the requirements of the game–the diamond, the outfields, the walls, the grandstands–shaped our most beloved ballparks.
LORRAINE BRACCO, Academy Award Nominated Actress), and ANGELA LAGRECA, Emmy award-winning producer and comedian.
Few actresses have left such an indelible mark in cinema as Lorraine Bracco, both in her performance as Karen Hill, her Academy Award nominated role in Goodfellas, and as Dr. Jennifer Melfi, Tony Soprano’s psychiatrist in the Sopranos. In conversation with Emmy Award winning producer Angela LaGreca, the discussion runs the gamut from the changing role of women in film, and the effect of the Me Too movement in Hollywood.
Additional guests this summer will include, Susan L. Solomon (Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder of The New York Stem Cell Foundation), Ron Delsener (Chairman of Live Nation, has been the largest promoter in the New York area since the 60s), Faith Popcorn (The Nostradamus of Marketing and CEO of Brain Reserve, best-selling author), Stephen M.
