Guide to the Weekend: Parental Edition

Written by

Since the folks are in, treat them to the best that New York has to offer.  Or, get them lost in the Book Culture and sneak out yourself. We won’t judge.

Friday, Saturday, and Sunday:

New Yorker Festival

See schedule of events for times and locations

A wild intellectual ride of panels and talks and Q&As.  Tickets are required—popular events are probably already sold out.  Sometimes you get lucky with stand-by.
