New Book: The Village Trip

Icon Books logo Icon Books, a leading independent publisher with offices in New York and London, is partnering with The Village Trip for a book on Greenwich Village.

Publication is scheduled for fall 2019 in both markets. The book will chronicle the history of the Village as the crucible of 20th-century American culture and its place at the forefront of the fight for social justice in terms of women's rights, civil rights and LGBT rights. As a local wit famously put it, “Everything started in the Village – except Prohibition”.

The Village Trip will be a guide to the people and places that comprise this unique neighborhood – though as anarchist, writer and waiter Hippolyte Havel, on whom Eugene O'Neill based Hugo Kalmar in The Iceman Cometh, “Greenwich Village is a spiritual zone of mind. It has no boundaries”.
