Hey Everyone! 

My name is Adam Schwartz writing you on behalf of the London Review of Books. In celebrating their 30th anniversary the LBR is hosting a lecture series next week in New York with some wonderful authors. I thought you guys might be interested in some free tickets. I have a bunch for each event. They are 15 dollars for the general public. All I will need you to do is a email me your name and I can put you on the list for whatever event you want! Please however, only respond if you will actually attend. If I put your name on the list, a seat is reserved and will not be given to anyone else. Below is a recap of what's going on. 


Best Regards,

 Adam Schwartz



Obama?s War

A lecture by Tariq Ali


Monday, 19 April at 7 p.m.

School of Visual Arts, 333 West 23rd Street, New York


During his presidential campaign, President Obama pledged more troops, ground intrusions and drone attacks to end the war in Afghanistan. This is a promise he has kept, but it won?t work. Tariq Ali will be talking about why the war is unwinnable and can only lead to a bloody stalemate.


Tariq Ali is the author of more than two dozen books about world history and politics, including The Duel: Pakistan on the Flight Path of American Power and The Protocols of the Elders of Sodom.


J?accuse: Dreyfus in Our Time

A lecture by Jacqueline Rose


Wednesday, 21 April at 7 p.m.

The Asia Society, 725 Park Avenue, New York


What lessons can we learn today from the Dreyfus Affair? What part does it play ? or should it play ? in the history of the Jews? Jacqueline Rose will offer a new interpretation of Dreyfus, while also investigating what the affair tells us about the public role of the intellectual and writer in our times.


Jacqueline Rose is a scholar and critic whose recent books include The Question of Zion and The Last Resistance.


The Author in the Age of the Internet


A panel discussion with John Lanchester, Andrew O?Hagan, Colm T?ib?n, Mary-Kay Wilmers and James Wood


Saturday, 24 April at 7 p.m.

Tishman Auditorium, 66 West 12th Street, New York


Developments in the internet and electronic publishing are revolutionising the way books are sold and read. Not since Gutenberg has there been such a profound change in the transfer of knowledge in our society. What effect is this having on authors? Is it changing the way they write? If the physical book dies out, how will this alter the nature of fictional and non-fictional texts? With the decline of print newspapers and the fragmentation of the reading constituency, how will classics be identified and reputations made?


John Lanchester, Andrew O?Hagan, Colm T?ib?n, Mary-Kay Wilmers and James Wood will discuss these and a host of related issues with special reference to their own practice as writers.
