Malcolm Gladwell, Rachel Maddow and Woody Allen were just a few of the headliners this weekend at the 10th annual New Yorker Festival.
Panelists spoke on the state of the music biz, truth in advertising, and Obama’s first year to date, among dozens of other topics. The artist Chuck Close showed off his studio. Calvin Trillin led an eating tour. Legendary cartoon editor Robert Mankoff taught a class on the tricks of his trade.
For the New Yorker fans, this festival is a mecca. And not just for New Yorkers. People traveled from out-of-state, even out of the country to attend. Writer and independent producer Sarah Baker was there and she joins us in the studio to tell us what all the hooplah is about.
