My paying gig sent me to several events at The New Yorker festival this past weekend. I blogged about them. That’s Colson Whitehead, above. You can read all the posts here:
Jonathan Lethem on The New Yorker’s hypnotic font.
Bill James and Nate Silver on Reggie Jackson and, unrelated, LSD.
Colson Whitehead’s R-Rated Insult-O-Matic.
Ricky Jay on Toby the Sapient Pig.
Salman Rushdie and Daniyal Mueenuddin go dark.
Which reminds me: you could have read them earlier had you been following me on Twitter. Do so here, should you like.
