Mad Men Finale Events
Mad Men, AMC's critically acclaimed series that follows fictional Madison Avenue ad executives in the 1960s, is celebrating its final seven episodes with events all around the City this spring. The fun begins in March at the New York Public Library with Mad Men Reading List, a tribute to the series that features a collection of 25 books that were read by the show's characters. Over at the Museum of the Moving Image, the show's costumes, props and large-scale sets—even the personal research materials used by show creator Matthew Weiner to create characters like Don Draper and Peggy Olsen—are on display in Matthew Weiner’s Mad Men. More dedicated fans of Mad Men can hear Weiner discuss the show at the Museum of Jewish Heritage on March 29, or attend Mad Men at the Movies at the Brooklyn Academy of Music (April 22–23). That event screens a series of movies that the characters on the show either watched or discussed, and is followed by conversations with a surprise cast member and Weiner.
