Another New Yorker Festival has come and gone, and it must be said it was a good one. We posted last week about the existence of Fora.tv's pay-per-view videos of a good number of the events. After the jump we post some tasty snippets to whet your appetite.

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!

Inevitably, a magazine with the reach of The New Yorker has a substantial audience across the country and in other countries. Lots of people want to participate in the New Yorker Festival, which takes place October 1-3, but are simply too far away. Those people are likely to rejoice in Fora.tv.

Fora.tv will be streaming a total of 18 NYF events as they happen (click on the link above for the exact list). You can purchase access to single events ($4.95 each) or the entire package ($59.95). Then you can watch the events as they are happening as well as on demand for 30 days after the festival. According to Fora.tv, live access "includes interactive chat, Twitter stream and simultaneous viewing—yes, you can purchase multiple programs that take place at the same time."

Good luck to both Fora.tv and its eager customers!

Schedule for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday after the jump.

The New Yorker has announced the program for the 2010 New Yorker Festival, scheduled for October 1-3. As always, the event will feature author events on the Friday, followed by a wide variety of events over the next two days.
