By the way, tickets are still available for The New Yorker Festival, taking place this year October 1st - 3rd.
The annual festival features interviews with artists, writers and performers by New Yorker Staff. There are also panels of writers and thinkers discussing topics such as climate change and gay marriage.
This year, Yo-Yo Ma, Alec Baldwin and Werner Herzog are speaking, among others. Mark and I were going to attend an evening with The Moth, but tickets were sold out almost instantly.
For those of you who don't know, at the Moth readings, people tell real stories without notes. The stories are often poignant, funny and unbelievable, (often all the above). Check out their website and free podcast here.
