      This Is New York with Jane Curtin: In Conversation with Maira Kalman

      Symphony Space is delighted to announce the launch of a new series with our friend, the brilliantly hilarious, boundlessly curious, and *occasionally* outspoken actress Jane Curtin in conversation with quintessential New Yorkers.

      New York City has been the muse of some of the world's greatest writers, actors, comedians, chefs, politicians, activists, and so many more. Symphony Space honors the gorgeous complexity of New York and the mystique that surrounds it, in this new conversation series exploring what is that thing that inspires such prolific creativity.

      First up: Jane talks with beloved artist, writer, and designer Maira Kalman about the pivotal role the city plays in her creative life and work.

      Maira Kalman's books can be purchased from Bookshop.org.
