Almost everything I love about New York is typified in this curator of public curiosity…Holdengräber crafts unreasonably interesting conversations in front of live audiences to satisfy a public curiosity that we sometimes don’t even realize we collectively have. He likes to talk to the best people in their respective fields, and in the course of conversation to ‘see what falls out of their pockets.’ With Holdengräber acting as a sort of cultural Robin Hood, we’re the lucky beneficiaries of his intellectual pickpocketing.
And visit the Library on February 25, when Adam Phillips takes the stage with Paul for the next installment of LIVE. Adam talked about “what falls out of your pockets once you start to speak” when he appeared at LIVE from the NYPL back in 2007. Listen to a recording of the conversation here.
