The New Yorker Festival has announced their 2008 lineup of events, and there are a lot of great ones. These ones have me drooling specifically:
Saturday, October 4th
Writers and Their Subjects: Clint Eastwood and Lillian Ross
1 p.m. Directors Guild of America ($25)
Lynda Barry in conversation with Matt Groening
4 p.m. Festival HQ
Metropolitan Pavilion ($25)
Worst Nightmares Part 1: Horror Movies
With Wes Craven and Hideo Nakata. Moderated by Ben Greenman.
7:30 p.m. IFC Center ($35)
The full lineup is pretty amazing. The events are all a bit pricey and will sell out fast, but definitely worth trying for if you see something you're really digging. Tickets go on sale Friday, September 12th.
