At Galleycat, Ron Hogan (a true Emdashes patron from way back) writes:
We’re getting the first drabs and drips of information about October’s upcoming New Yorker festival, the magazine’s three-day weekend of cultural symposia, concerts, and other events. Here’s what we can tell you about the literary side of things: In addition to the usual Friday night readings, there’s also going to be a set of events that feature “authors in conversation.” Among the couplings: Miranda July and AM Homes will discuss deviants, Sir Salman Rushdie and Orhan Pamuk trade insights on homeland, and Martin Amis and Norman Mailer will talk about “monsters,” although I wouldn’t be surprised if that turns into a discussion of totalitarian leaders like Stalin and Hitler, about whom they’ve each respectively written.
