A Vibrant Map of the World: McSweeney’s Panorama and the Beauty of Newspapers
January 13, 2010 5:00 p.m. – 6:30 p.m.
Tishman Auditorium, 66 W. 12th Street
When McSweeney’s printed a prototype Sunday newspaper last month, the writers, editors, and artists who worked on the project were hoping to show some of the great things the print medium remains capable of. The result was the San Francisco Panorama, which sold out within its first week and garnered accolades across the country.
Dave Eggers, author and editor of McSweeney’s, joined by contributors to the project, will give a presentation on the Panorama, discussing the thinking that went into it and what newspapers as a print medium still have to offer.
Introduced by Luis Jaramillo, associate chair, The Writing Program at the New School
