Morningside Lights: The Open Book

September 30, 2023
8:00 PM
Morningside Park, W. 110 St. to W. 123 St., Manhattan Ave. to Morningside Ave., New York, NY 10026

Morningside Lights returns with The Open Book, a celebration of the free exchange of ideas and an homage to the libraries that preserve access to knowledge and affirm our freedom to read. Presented in partnership with the Columbia University Libraries and The New York Public Library, each of the 50+ community-built lanterns will pay tribute to a book that inspires, enlightens, and shapes how we see the world.

Join us after dusk on September 30 to witness a luminous catalogue of “Great Books” where each glowing volume will honor a unique perspective while renewing our collective resolve to keep our libraries free and our minds open.

Be a part of creating the magic of Morningside Lights by joining us for a free lantern-building workshop September 23-29.
