NYRB in Seattle

Throughout the entire painful Bush administration, The New York Review of Books has been the single most consistently critical American media source. On Thursday October 30 several of the Review’s contributors and editors, including Seattle writer Jonathan Raban, journalist Tom Powers, Guardian critic Martin Kettle, and liberal columnist Michael Tomasky come to the Seattle Town Hall to speak on the human and political costs of the war on terror and the occupation of Iraq, and look ahead to the 2008 election. Sure to come up is a powerful new collection of essays published by New York Review Books entitled The Consequences to Come: American Power After Bush. The talk is presented by the Town Hall Center for Civic Life, with New York Review of Books, Guardian America and Elliott Bay Book Company.

Tickets are just $5 and are available at brownpapertickets.

i used to dig/respect NYRB, but i remember seeing more than one cover over the past few years where i was like, 'what?'

i tried to find some covers, but NYRB has done a good job of making sure they can't be found.
