Book Presentation: Tomorrow-Land–The 1964-65 World’s Fair and the Transformation of America, by Joseph Tirella

Queens College alumnus Joseph Tirella creates a portrait of Flushing Meadows and its fairgrounds that had little to do with the turmoil around it. The book examines how the World’s Fair was a flashpoint in the politics of the 1960s, as well as in pop culture, civils rights, and violent crime. Sponsored by the University of Calabria and the Calandra Institute. Free and open to the public. For more information, please call 212-642-2094.
