The New Yorker Festival Oct 1st-3rd

abstract:If you're like me you anticipate the moment when you turn the key on your post box, open the door to find your copy of this week's New Yorker magazine, teasingly folded over so that the new cover illustration and lineup of feature articles written by informed, entertaining and intelligent writers addressing today's events around the globe are revealed; then you won't want to miss the next New Yorker Festival. What goes on at the Festival? Well, the full program will be announced Sept 6th and tickets go on sale Sept 10th but I can tell you that your favorite staff writers and contributors will be on stages discussing their work, debating the issues, and entertaining you live. Go to newyorker.com/festival. New Yorker staff, such as the popular Malcolm Gladwell, will be live blogging during the festival to keep you updated. Come watch intelligent speakers talk about cool things. Even the speakers lament (for example) not being able to attend a session of the Mad Men creative team because they've been simu-scheduled at a forum next door. As one writer-speaker aptly put it, "It's wonderful to have the veil removed between you and your reading audience. To actually get meet your readers, who remarkably have really been paying close attention to your writing, and to hear their questions and opinions... " Satisfying all around!
