Lecturer- Bonnie Yochelson 4:00 - 5:30 at the Brubeck Room, Wilton Library In 1890, Jacob A. Riis published How the Other Half Lives, a best-selling book that revealed the horrific conditions of New York's slums, which were the worst in the world. A Danish-born immigrant, Riis was a charismatic writer and speaker who engaged the conscience of his readers while entertaining them. He stumbled upon the innovative idea of using photographs to enhance his message. Author of a dozen books and hundreds of articles, Riis traveled the country giving illustrated lectures until his death in 1914. Join us for a fresh interpretation of Riis' contribution to social reform and photographic history by Bonnie Yochelson, art historian and independent curator, in the fourth lecture in the 8th annual collaboration between the Wilton Library and the Wilton Historical Society.
