There's only one day of the year we can run that headline, and today is that day.
Emily and I will be attending events all weekend. I'll be at tonight's "Living History" event with E. Annie Proulx, E.L. Doctorow, and Peter Carey, and I'll be seeing Bill Simmons and Neil Gaiman, among others. Emily will be at the James Taylor, Pee-Wee Herman (they're listing it as "Paul Reubens," and we get that, but hey, it's The Pee-Wee Herman Show on Broadway!), and Sympathy for Delicious events, and other ones too. And we may have guest writers weighing in.
Remember: as it did last year, the New Yorker Festival is offering a small number of tickets to all events during the weekend, so a lucky few of you will still get in!
Here's to another great festival! See you there!
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.
