The Osborn Hosts First WellSpring Event of the Fall Season Featuring Fiona Davis

On October 19, after a three year COVID-related hiatus, The Osborn held its first WellSpring event of the fall season featuring a lecture by New York Times best-selling author, Fiona Davis. Ms. Davis addressed the near capacity crowd in The Osborn’s newly refurbished art deco style auditorium. She provided insight into her latest book entitled The Spectacular, a novel that transports us back to 1950s Manhattan and glamorous Radio City Music Hall. It centers on a talented young Rockette and a mysterious bomber terrorizing New York City.

Ms. Davis, who has lived in New York City for more than 35 years, discussed how she conducted research for the book and her many personal experiences living there. Her other works include: The Lions of Fifth Avenue, The Address, The Dollhouse, The Masterpiece and Chelsea Girls, among others – all centering on life in New York City in a bygone era. Some focus on specific New York landmarks such as The Dakota, Fifth Avenue, The Theater District and more.

Following her presentation, Ms. Davis conducted a lively Q and A, followed by a book signing. The free event was sponsored by The Osborn through its WellSpring program and attended by about 80 people, comprised of Osborn residents, staff and members of the greater Rye community.
