Please join graphic novelist Peter Tomasi as he discusses his inspiring new work, The Bridge--the extraordinary story behind the construction of the iconic Brooklyn landmark. A "paean to collaboration," the novel foregrounds the relationship between Washington Roebling and Emily Roebling, who stepped in to oversee the project after her husband became afflicted with caisson disease. From fending off hostile press and greedy city politicians to managing the workers and contractors, Emily's role was as essential as it was unusual for the time.

A New York Times best-selling author known for his work with DC Comics, Peter Tomasi has also worked on Superman Rebirth, Batman and Robin, and others. The Bridge is a collaborative project with illustrator Sara DuVall.
