Oh boy, this should be good. The New Yorker Festival has invited its hardcore junkies to outdo one another. Best evidence of past Festival obsession yields a profusion of tickets—but that person would need it least of all!

We want you to share your Festival bona fides. Have you been to all nine Festivals? Did you stand in line for two hours to get the chance to meet Alice Munro? What's your favorite Festival memory?

The Festival staff will review all the comments posted by September 30th and announce the most die-hard Festival fan on [the New Yorker Festival blog]. The winner will receive a specially curated batch of tickets for two to this year's Festival.

More details here.

I don't have any good stories of obsession, I had attended a half-dozen events or so over the years, but recently I've been comped. (But wait: My Festival tattoo makes me a shoo-in....)
