Lit Fête: A Virtual Celebration of Writers and Writing
We planned to share Lit Fête: A Virtual Celebration of Writers and Writing, on Tuesday, June 9. We recognize, however, that this is not the moment for a literary celebration, and have made the decision to cancel.
PAST EVENT Writers at Work/The Paris Review: An Evening with Kwame Anthony Appiah and David Remnick
On Wednesday, January 29, New Yorker editor David Remnick will interview scholar, philosopher, and author Kwame Anthony Appiah for his Art of Nonfiction interview at the Morgan Library.
The Paris Review’s renowned Writers at Work interview series is one of the landmarks of modern world literature. Hailed by the New York Times as “the most remarkable interviewing project we possess,” the series received a George Polk Award and has been nominated for a Pulitzer Prize. Writers at Work interviews, at once expansive and intimate, are rarely conducted in public; Mr. Remnick’s interview of Mr. Appiah brings one of the leading intellectuals of our time into conversation with one of New York’s great editors on a truly special evening.
The exhibition Alfred Jarry: The Carnival of Being will be open at 6 PM for program attendees. Select works from The Paris Review Archive, owned by the Morgan, will be on view.
Tickets: $20; $15 for Morgan Members and Paris Review Subscribers; free for students with valid ID.
