@ Paley Library Lecture Hall, Ground Floor, 1210 Polett Walk n+1 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. n +1 is a twice-yearly print journal of politics, literature, and culture. Jonathan Franzen has said of the publication, “Just when you’re thinking you’re intellectually alone in the world, something like n+1 falls into your hands,” and A.O. Scott raved in the New York Times magazine that the periodical offers “[p]ointed, closely argued and often brilliantly original critiques of contemporary life and letters.” Gessen is an essayist, novelist, and translator from Russian. His first novel, All the Sad Young Literary Men, was published in 2008, and he has written for the New Yorker, the London Review of Books, and other print and web-based periodicals. Roth lives here in Philadelphia and is a 2009 Pew Fellow in the Arts. His essays have appeared in Dissent and the Nation; his memoir, Reverse Transcription, will be published by Farrar Straus and Giroux in 2011. Avant_Garde.png n+19.png
