In a piece in the New Statesman last year, Believer editor Heidi Julavits laughs at an essay she wrote in The Believer’s first issue, which bemoaned that book reviews in newspapers weren’t long enough. “Newspaper reviews!” she writes. “Some of you might recall those.” But despite all the change, The Believer has remained true to its original mission of making the reader care about subjects “you had never known could be interesting.” Tonight, raise a glass to Julavits and co-founder Ed Park as they celebrate The Believer’s 10th Anniversary. Joining them will be Believercolumnist Nick Hornby, Sheila Heti, Gabrielle Bell, and Amanda Filipacchi. Experimental jazz trio Dawn of Midi provide the tunes.
