Last year, the fashion designer Rachel Comey approached the Review‘s art editor, Leanne Shapton, about using the Review‘s covers for a line of clothing. Rachel Comey selected five covers from December 2021 to March 2022, displaying the work of artists Greg Burak, Yuichi Yokoyama, Una Ursprung, Tucker Nichols, and Clara Adolphs, with cover lines announcing the articles by contributors including Lauren Groff, Vivian Gornick, Kwame Anthony Appiah, Sheila Heti, and Yiyun Li.
On Thursday, January 19th, Review contributors Merve Emre, Vivian Gornick, Rowan Ricardo Phillips, Kevin Young and other special guests will join Rachel Comey, Leanne Shapton, and Emily Greenhouse for a night of readings and refreshments. The store will be collecting donations for Books Beyond Bars, a volunteer nonprofit organization that sends free books to incarcerated New Yorkers.
