1st NW Quadrant\The Approval Matrix: Week of March 3, 2008
It appears that this occurred last year. I wasn't able to find any current information on this, but here it goes anyway. I personally like Adam Gopnik. I've seen his "Lighting Up New York" documentary about ten times! (I use it for a class I teach.)
Rosewood Hotels & Resorts is proud to announce the newest chapter of its exclusive Hot Type Author Series: world-renowned writer Adam Gopnik. Known for his outstanding work at The New Yorker and his playful Parisian-inspired novels, Paris to the Moon and The King in the Window, Gopnik will be visiting Caneel Bay, A Rosewood Resort, in the U.S. Virgin Islands, January 27-31, 2007, to host a series of gatherings where guests will have the exclusive opportunity to discuss his past works, his adventures in Paris as well as his most recent book, Through the Children's Gate: A Home in New York with him.
A writer for The New Yorker since 1986, Adam Gopnik has come to be known as one of the preeminent, wittiest, and most charming interpreters of contemporary life writing today.
Adam Gopnik has won the National Magazine Award for Essays and for Criticism an unprecedented three times, as well as the George Polk Award for Magazine Reporting. He lives now in New York with his wife, Martha Parker, and their two children, Luke Auden and Olivia Esme Claire.
