STAMFORD, CT - From its celestial ceiling to its mysterious catacombs, learn the secrets of one of the nation’s most iconic transit hubs with Sam Roberts, author of Grand Central: How a Train Station Transformed America, during The 2014 Marie Hurley Travel Lecture on Sunday, March 30 at 2 p.m. at The Ferguson Library’s Third Floor Auditorium, Bedford & Broad Streets, Stamford.

Roberts is The New York Times urban affairs correspondent and Metro Matters columnist. He also is the host of the television show "New York Times Close Up." In addition to being a frequent guest on National Public Radio, Sam Roberts is the author of numerous books.

A rich, illustrated - and entertaining -- history of the iconic train hub, Roberts delves into Grand Central's conception, amazing history, and the far-reaching cultural effects of the station that continues to amaze tourists and shuttle busy commuters.

Featuring quirky anecdotes and behind-the-scenes information, this book will allow readers to peek into the secret and unseen areas of Grand Central -- from the tunnels, to the command center, to the hidden passageways.

This annual program, named for Marie Hurley, a former Library director who loved to travel, is co-sponsored by The World Affairs Forum and generously supported by the Friends of The Ferguson Library. For more information call 203 351-8231.
