Join Geoff Dyer as he discusses his new book, Otherwise Known as the Human Condition, with Lorin Stein, at Greenlight Bookstore, 686 Fulton Street, in Brooklyn. The event begins at 7:30 PM.
Last night, The Paris Review took home an Ellie in the category of Essays and Criticism for John Jeremiah Sullivan’s “Mister Lytle: An Essay.” In a long night of long speeches, Lorin Stein did us proud.
It’s a big week for friends of The Paris Review, one full of readings, parties, and performances that we thought you, our dear readers, might like to attend:
Saturday, May 7: FUNraiser for J&L BOOKS
Leanne Shapton and Jason Fulford will host a fundraiser for their imprint, J&L books, which dedicates itself to publishing well-designed books of previously unpublished or rarely seen work by contemporary artists. A $10 ticket will get you a letterpressed Mother’s Day card and a raffle ticket, as well as access to a sale of vintage clothes, and original art by J&L artists. Later that evening, J&L will celebrate the launch of Another Ventriloquist by Adam Gilders. Click here for more information.

Tuesday, May 10: Geoff Dyer Talks with Lorin Stein
At Greenlight Books, Geoff Dyer and Lorin Stein will discuss Dyer’s latest book, a collection of essays called Otherwise Known as the Human Condition at Greenlight Books. Click here for more information.
Wednesday, May 11: Pop-Up Magazine + ESPN Magazine
What happens when you make a magazine for just one night? Nothing is published, nothing goes online—it’s a live magazine. Join contributors to The New Yorker, This American Life, The New York Times Magazine, Harper’s Magazine, and others as they share stories, films, interviews, photography, and much more live on stage. Tickets are $25, click here for more information.

Next Tuesday, the Norwood Club, that mysterious brownstone on 14th Street devoted to the arts, is throwing open its doors to friends of The Paris Review. Sam Lipsyte, Alexandra Kleeman, and Lorin Stein will stage a mini retrospective of the last three issues.
This event is open to the public, but non-members of the Norwood Club must make a reservation by calling (212) 255–9300 or e-mailing the front desk of the Norwood Club.
The Daily has been chosen as an Official Honoree by the 2011 Webby Awards in two categories: Best Copy/Writing and Blog, Cultural. “With nearly 10,000 entries received from all 50 US states and over 60 countries,” says Webby Exec David-Michel Davies, “the Official Honoree distinction is awarded to the top 10% of all work entered that exhibits remarkable achievement.”
Thanks to all of our contributors! We think you’re tops, too!
Come to Housing Works this evening to hear our poetry editor, Robyn Creswell, talk with New York Times critic (and culture diarist?) David Orr about his new book together with Sam Tanenhaus, Dwight Garner, Laura Miller, and Tree Swenson. On the FSG Web site Creswell gives a preview of their talk.
