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 pre-web internet nut. Emdashes, born in 2004, spent many years as a New Yorker fan blog. The project garnered some nice compliments and press.
The blog’s now treading the territories of punctuation, publications, movies, design, and other things that stir me.
Over the years, I’ve worked with a brilliant brigade 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.
Jennifer Hadley designed the original Emdashes pencil logo, based on a 1943 Dorothy Gray ad.
