NYC Arts, Culture & Fun Presents: Talking Inspiration: OYSTERS

In Oysters: A Celebration in the Raw, Marion Lear Swaybill presents a wide-ranging visual exploration of this iconic shellfish, including stunning portraits, photographs from beautiful oyster farms, and illustrations of oysters in the arts and culture alongside a lively and informative text.

Join us for the book presentation and a panel discussion to learn more about the importance of the oysters with Marion Lear Swaybill, Emmy award-winning television producer, writer, and pioneering media executive.
