Bill Finger at the 92nd Street Y


On 5/15/13, I had the pleasure of returning to the 92nd Street Y in New York to speak about a Great Event that happened not far from there: the creation of Batman.


This was a comp ticket; as shown in the previous image, people actually had to part with 
$29 to hear me, which I thought would mean (far) fewer than 29 would show up.


The venue alone was an honor, as was the fact that people I care about came to listen, including a gaggle of college friends:


One of the three people to whom the book is dedicated also humbled me with his attendance: Charles Sinclair, Bill’s longtime friend and sometime writing partner.


Like the last time I spoke at the Y (2009), I took a photo of the room before I started:


But unlike the last time, I forgot to take one of the room once it’d filled in, which was the point.

The event generated some wonderful coverage.




And the coverage generated some wonderful coverage.

More than 350 likes and almost 50 shares 
for the Facebook link to the Newsarama article.

Savage Dragon creator Erik Larsen weighed in on Facebook.

Thank you again to Sidney Burgos for hosting me. Hope to speak under your roof again.
