Dave Eggers’s literary journal has survived and even thrived in an era generally considered hostile to the printed word. Although it has featured such notable authors as Michael Chabon and Joyce Carol Oates, McSweeney’s still sticks to its original premise of publishing only works that have been rejected elsewhere, and has never lost the sense of playful outsiderdom that has defined it since its inception. At this 15th-anniversary event, contributors including Jonathan Ames and Sheila Heti will participate in readings and discussions.
Warm up those frostbitten toes and broaden your mind at a gallery, museum, ballet or literary festival. From exploring the new Queens Museum to taking in a performance-art piece, Time Out's got you covered, with New York arts events to keep you toasty until spring.
