Reading Room Cliffs Notes: Week of August 18

Reading Room Cliffs Notes is the essential guide to what's going on in the Reading Room for the upcoming week. The "Flashback" section captures a highlight from last week, while "Foreshadowing" gives a full list of the upcoming week's events. Make a visit to the Bryant Park Reading Room presented by HSBC a plot point in your week!  

Flashback of the Week: Batman's 75th Anniversary 
“It set a precedent for me. I guess personally about the character, more than any other character, more than Spiderman, more than Superman, more than anyone… that Batman lived in the world we knew and he fought the problems that we fought or were afraid of, and that was immediately enticing about Batman – and when I knew he would be my favorite character” – Scott Synder
