This, from the National Book Critics Circle, made its way to my in-box:
How reviewers are adapting to the new digital order has been one of the burning themes among NBCC members for the past year. NBCC board member Scott McLemee sends along notice of his own intervention of sorts: On Saturday, from 5 to 7 PM EST, he'll be hosting an on-line book salon about Adam Gopnik's Angels and Ages at Firedoglake.com. The transcripts of previous FDL salons, which have featured contributors ranging from Thomas Ricks to Rick Perlstein are here.
How intriguing! I'm sure that'll be terrific.
Hello! I’m Emily Gordon, an editor, critic, copywriter, and internet lover since 1992. Emdashes, born in 2004, spent its formative years as a New Yorker fan blog. (The project garnered some nice compliments and press.) It’s now a collection of conversations—generally civilized—about punctuation, magazines, movies, design, and other things that stir me.
Over the years, I’ve worked with a small army of culture writers, editors, and artists. You can read all about the people who've helped build Emdashes here at “Who We?” (That’s a New Yorker joke. Old habits die hard.)
I welcome submissions, questions, corrections, and ardent, obsessive contributors. I also host occasional book-related contests and giveaways. Questioners and publishers, just email me.
Looking for The New Yorker magazine? Kudos on your classy taste. Here’s how to contact The New Yorker.
The original Emdashes pencil logo was designed by Jennifer Hadley, based on a 1943 Dorothy Gray ad.
