:.:New Yorker Festival::October 3-5, 2008:.:
This is going to be like a 3-day intellectual orgy. My kind of party. Kinda pricey too. Tix are $25 a pop. In some instances, it might be well worth it. Here's a short list of the folks I'm planning on going to see:
* Malcolm Gladwell: “The Ethnic Theory of Plane Crashes”
2 p.m. Ailey Citigroup Theater
Joan Weill Center for Dance ($25)
* Where I Come From
With Sherman Alexie, Shalom Auslander, and Junot Díaz. Moderated by Carin Besser.
9:30 p.m. Angel Orensanz Foundation ($25)
* Race and Class in America
With Barbara Ehrenreich, Thomas Frank, John McWhorter, Leslie Sanchez, and Cornel West. Moderated by David Remnick.
7 p.m. Town Hall
Additional speakers include Oliver Stone, Matt Groening, and Stephen Colbert.
There's also supposed to be a talking bike tour of Governor's Island. Hmm...interesting.
Hit up the New Yorker for more info. Tix are on sale now...hurry!
