Book Talk - History of Ellis Island - Vincent Cannato - April 19 (Boston Public Library Copley)
16 Apr 2017
Vincent Cannato, Author of American Passage: The History of Ellis Island Wednesday, April 19, 2017, 6 - 7:30 p.m.
Ellis Island stands alongside Plymouth Rock in our nation's founding mythology as the place where many of our ancestors first touched American soil. Ellis Island's heyday--from 1892 to 1924--coincided with one of the greatest mass movements of individuals the world has ever seen, with some twelve million immigrants inspected at its gates. Vincent Cannato talks about his compelling and widely praised book American Passage: the History of Ellis Island.
Professor Cannato teaches history at the University of Massachusetts, Boston. He is the author of The Ungovernable City: John Lindsay and His Struggle to Save New York, and has written for The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and The Washington Post.
