George Washington Bridge: Poetry in Steel

Date: Mar 11, 2020
Time: 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
Location: Bernardsville Library

Michael Aaron Rockland will speak about his new, updated book on the George Washington Bridge, the busiest bridge in the world. He’ll explain how suspension bridges work, talk about the fact that the bridge was never finished because of the Depression, and how, when he was first researching the book, he climbed to the top of the New York tower accompanied by four Port Authority policemen. He’ll also discuss Bridgegate and the interesting issues the case raised at the hearing before the Supreme Court in January. Books will be available for purchase and signing. Free.
