“The History of Pizza in New York” with Scott Wiener
Wednesday, April 30th 2014, 7:00pm
Brooklyn Collection, Second Floor, Central Library

Everyone loves pizza. Scott Wiener, however, loves pizza more than most people. In fact, he transitioned from a pizza enthusiast who dragged his friends on pizza adventures to a nationally-known “pizza expert.” He runs multiple highly-rated tours of pizzerias in NYC, writes a column for a pizza trade magazine, holds a Guinness World Record for the largest collection of pizza boxes, and even wrote a book titled Viva La Pizza! The art of the pizza box. You can learn more about his pizza-related experiences on his blog, Scott's Pizza Journal. To say the least, he’s a really interesting guy.

The Brooklyn Collection will be presenting Scott Wiener as he talks about the history of pizza in New York, and specifically Brooklyn. Bring something to take notes (a napkin, perhaps), as he’s sure to deliver some important practical information about eating in Brooklyn ... and rumor has it that there will be pizza!

A wine reception, as well as distribution of tickets, begins at 6:30 p.m. The Brooklyn Collection is located on the 2nd floor balcony of the Central Library at Grand Army Plaza. Seating is limited to 40.
