SATURDAY October 8

You’re not really New Yorker if you don’t read The New Yorker. Well, I mean, I guess technically you are. I guess your “New Yorker” status depends on whether you live in New York and have it for a while, really, at least more than your tastes in magazines. I just like personally The New Yorker and think people should read it. And me love their party. They’ll be hosting a ton of big events today. Keegan-Michael Key (the co-creator of Key and Peele) will speak with Henry finder. The festival will also present a Mr. Robot panel with Sam esmail and Christian slater, so maybe we can all finally figure out what was going on with all the twists and turns of last season. And Jeremy Irons will be in conversation with Rebecca Mead. And there’s no reading required (although, seriously, subscribe, that’s great). Locations vary, all day, from $ 45 to $ 65
