New York Review Books – A 20th Anniversary Celebration

Jan 27, 2020

All-star writers Marlon James (Black LeopardRed Wolf), Leslie Jamison (The Empathy Exams) and Colm Tóibín (Brooklyn) join New York Review Books founder and editorial director Edwin Frank to perform selections from their favorite NYRB Classics in celebration of the press’ two decades of visionary publishing. Frank reads from the NYRB’s The Red Thread, an anthology of work from the press’ last 20 years, Tóibín from Josep Pla’s The Gray Notebook, Jamison from Renata Adler’s Speedboat and Elizabeth Hardwick’s Sleepless Nights, and James reads from Camara Lye’s The Radiance of the King and Felix Feneon’s Novels in Three Lines.

92Y needs your help

Many of you have asked how you can help 92Y as we face tremendous financial losses due to Covid-19. From now through June 30, your gift will be matched dollar for dollar up to $250,000 by an anonymous donor—going twice as far in supporting 92Y. You can help sustain our beloved institution and support the creation of new, online programming that will bring comfort and inspiration to our community. Thank you for anything you can do to help.
