Festival

A three-day fete toasting highbrow pop culture

Marina Abramovic, Aziz Ansari, Malcolm Gladwell, Miranda July, Jonathan Franzen, Clay Shirky, and Ethan Hawke are just a few of the folks you'll find at this year's New Yorker Festival. Now in its 14th year, the three-day fete is like Christmas for lovers of highbrow pop culture. Containing few lowlights, the 2013 program includes an evening with Funny or Die; a panel where Rachel Dratch, Christopher Guest, Aubrey Plaza, and Horatio Sanz revisit their career beginnings in improv with Susan Morrison; and a conversation on television and politics between W. Kamau Bell and the creators and producers of Scandal, Veep, and The Good Wife. Also planned are a slew of author book signings and discussions; scintillating About Town excursions with the likes of David Chang, Lena Dunham and Calvin Trillin; and the return of the live version of The New Yorker's famed cartoon caption contest. Tickets go quicker than you can say Eustace Tilley, so best get to stepping now.
