Matilda, the Algonquin Cat
Written by FRAXA board member, Leslie Eddy, “Matilda, The Algonquin Cat” is the real-life story of the feline-in-residence at New York City’s legendary hotel, as told by Matilda herself. In 1932, when a stray cat wandered into the lobby of The Algonquin Hotel, kindhearted hotelier Frank Case provided him a permanent home in the hotel and the legend of The Algonquin Cat was born! “Matilda, The Algonquin Cat” illuminates the daily routine of Manhattan’s most celebrated feline while paying homage to The Algonquin’s long held tradition of hosting authors, journalists, and actors-most notably the “Algonquin Round Table.”
