Short Stories Live: Stories From 'The New Yorker' says
Magazines have served as an important platform for short fiction in our country. This series encompasses three very different magazines which have published major literary works. The selections are intended to span different audiences and generations, and offer a fascinating journey through American history and culture.

The New Yorker has made remarkable contributions to the art form of short fiction and has boosted the careers of such greats as Alice Munroe, William Trevor, John Updike, Isaac Bashevis Singer, Ruth Prower Jhabvala, John Cheever, Eudora Welty, and many more. This event’s selection is intended to represent the magazine's sophisticated humor, New York City itself, and increasingly diverse voices.

* S. J. Perelman, “Farewell My Lovely Appetizer” (1944)
* Oliver La Farge, “Wedding at Rociada” (1951)
* Renata Adler, “Brownstone” (1973)
* Jamaica Kincaid, “Poor Visitor”(1989)
