The New York Society Library holds its third annual Salon, featuring food and wine, conversation, visual presentations, and readings. Editors of Triple Canopy and The Paris Review will discuss literature old and new, on the page and on the Web. Triple Canopy will present its first literary—or not not literary—issue, Counterfactuals. Editors will read and play audio and video selections from the issue along with contributor Tan Lin, the author of numerous works of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. They will speak to Triple Canopy's effort to cultivate new forms of literary work online and undermine generic conventions. They will also present Triple Canopy's first book, Invalid Format: An Anthology of Triple Canopy, which explores how works produced for the screen might fully inhabit the page.
The Paris Review will present its Winter 2011 issue, featuring interviews with Jeffrey Eugenides and Alan Hollinghurst and fiction by Roberto Bolaño and Clarice Lispector. The Paris Review contributor Avi Steinberg will share the colorful and peculiar history of the airline safety card, with accompanying slides. A casual conversation with the audience about how literature evolves—or fails to evolve; or should resist evolving—along with shifts in the way we read and write, and the machines we use to do so, will follow.

How to Print an Internet Magazine
An Evening with Triple Canopy and Project Projects
McNally Jackson Books, 52 Prince Street, New York, NY
Thursday, January 19, 7–8:30 p.m.
Free and open to the public


Triple Canopy editors Alexander Provan and Peter J. Russo will read selections from Invalid Format and discuss its genesis and form with the book’s designer, Prem Krishnamurthy of the firm Project Projects. Krishnamurthy will, in turn, discuss how Project Projects makes productive use of the tension between new and old print technologies and design conventions in its work, which ranges from exhibitions to pamphlets, websites to catalogs.

“Since its first issue in 2008 the nonprofit Triple Canopy has been a high-minded, high-design artifact, with writers and art directors from Harper’s and Artforum and a sharp, scholarly wit. Triple Canopy deals with heady cultural concepts. Online it broke the mold of traditional Web design; instead of scrolling down, readers page left and right, which gives the work a framed look.… Their concept of “slowing down the Internet” has come to seem prescient."

—Melena Ryzik, The New York Times
