The New Yorker Festival: Entertaining, Informing, and Enriching New York for Nearly a Century

The New Yorker Festival: Entertaining, Informing, and Enriching New York for Nearly a Century

October 01, 2017

There are few images as iconic as Eustace Tilley, the cartoon dandy whose foppish profile has regularly graced the cover of The New Yorker magazine since its founding in 1925. As a mascot for the renowned publication, Tilley perfectly captures The New Yorker’s ethos of self-aware erudition: whether fiction, poetry, film and art reviews, political commentary, about-town reportage, or satire, The New Yorker only publishes the best of the best; still, they’re wise enough not to take themselves too seriously. From October 6th through the 8th, you can experience some of the world’s most talented voices in live interviews and panel discussions as top New Yorker staffers sit down with leading figures in literature, theater, music, film, technology, politics, and much more. Speakers will include Tony and Emmy Award-winning actress Glenn Close; sitcom iconoclast Jerry Seinfeld; SNL alum and United States Senator Al Franken; firebrand journalist and The Shock Doctrine author Naomi Klein; and notorious foodie, chef, and Emmy Award-winning TV personality Anthony Bourdain. For the full roster of participants and the venues where they’ll be appearing, see The New Yorker Festival’s official line-up here.
