Before you take down the stockings, join highly acclaimed author and cultural historian Sibyl McCormac Groff for a discussion of her latest book, A New York Christmas: Ho Ho Ho at Gothamtide. Groff, who is known as “Queen Santa,” demonstrates the importance of New York as the Christmas Capital. Her talk explores the holiday traditions of the diverse cultures that have contributed to making Christmas in NYC a one-of-a-kind experience. Groff will also share insights into how Edith Wharton and her friends celebrated the holidays.
