It’s an exciting time at n+1—we just launched our third small book, What Was the Hipster?, we’re about to release our tenth issue, on November 12—and we have a lot of great events coming up on our calendar. So you don’t miss anything (or at least not everything) here’s the rundown. We hope you can join us.
Wednesday, October 27, 3:30 PM, “A Conversation on Periodicals and Publishing,” Paley Library Lecture Hall, Temple University, Philadelphia, PA: “Editors Marco Roth and Keith Gessen will discuss what it takes to start a print literary journal, survive the battle of ideas with other magazines (and the internet), and even get some writing done on the side.” More information at the Temple website.
Friday, October 29, 7 PM, What Was the Hipster? book party, Spoonbill & Sugartown, Brooklyn, NY: Join editors and contributors to celebrate the launch of What was the Hipster?, which the Guardian called “perhaps the most comprehensive examination of this contemporary manifestation . . . a more withering assessment of youth culture is hard to imagine.” There will be copies of the book on sale, plus drinks.
Friday the 29th is also the opening of Paper Monument editor Roger White’s show at Rachel Uffner Gallery. The opening is at 6 PM, and we encourage you to stop by before the party. Take the ultimate hipster route between them, the F to the L.
Monday, November 8, 7 PM, “Reflections on the public, private intellectual,” The Kitchen, NY, NY: “Immediately following the posthumous publication of Roland Barthes’s Mourning Diary by Farrar, Straus and Giroux, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Richard Howard—who translated Mourning Diary—and editor Marco Roth will discuss Howard’s experience working with and translating Barthes as well as broader questions about public versus private intellectual work.” More information available from the Kitchen.
Friday, November 12, 9 PM, Issue 10 launch party, Secret Project Robot, Brooklyn, NY: Launch party! Stay tuned for more details.
Tuesday, November 16, 6 PM, “The Death of Print,” Theresa Lang Center, The New School, NY, NY: “Join Andre Schiffrin in conversation with Keith Gessen on Schiffrin’s career in publishing, the death of the bookstore (and possible solutions), and pressure created by conglomerates. Schiffrin, who has been at the forefront of publishing for over forty years, will discuss his search for alternative publishing models, and how today’s publishing moment feels different from those of the past.” More information available from Verso.
