David Byrne, Ed Park, Rivka Galchen, Zadie Smith, Lynne Tillman, and Colm Tóibín — it would be a treat to see just one of these writers (or, in Byrne’s case, make that writer-musician-producer-artist-activist) in person. But Bookforum is doing much better than that. The venerable publication has managed to bring all of them together for a night of readings at the New Museum titled The Night We Called It a Day. And it’s completely free. File this one under: only in New York.
