From Iseabail Kelley’s article for The Daily Orange:
Despite being assigned the novel multiple times as a young teenager, Meryl Meisler never fully finished “A Tale of Two Cities” by Charles Dickens. She hadn’t even read it all the way through until she named her first book after it.
“A Tale of Two Cities: Disco Era Bushwick,” published in 2014, showcases Meisler’s collection of street photography from her time as a public school teacher in Brooklyn and the wild nightlife images of New York City in the 1970s. An exhibition of archives from Meisler’s first book, titled “Meryl Meisler: Best of Times, Worst of Times,” went on display at Light Work on March 22 and will run until late July.
