I just found out that the New York Public Library has a really cool article discussion group that meets once a month at the Seward Park Library in the Lower East Side. The article for the December 19th meeting is called "Like This or Die: The Fate of the Book Review in the Age of the Algorithm" by Christian Lorentzen. It was published in Harper's Magazine (April 2019) and can be found/printed out here:
I am definitely going and welcome others to join me! Warmly recommend if you're interested in literary criticism, literature as an institution, literary debates, new ideas, and reading in general.
Thursday, 19 December at 6:30 p.m. at the Seward Park Library:
