Alan Walker, speaker | Valerie Tryon, piano

Alan Walker, the renowned biographer of Franz Liszt, returns to the Library with a new life of Chopin. Walker will speak about his book Fryderyk Chopin: A Life and Times, described by The New York Times Book Review as “...a magisterial portrait… a polyphonic work that elegantly interweaves multiple strands.” Walker’s talk will also address the Library’s Chopin holdings, and pianist Valerie Tryon will then offer a performance of works by Chopin. The event will be followed by a book signing.

*Books will be available for sale.
