Come for a night in celebration of Freeman's, the all new literary biannual from the former editor of GrantaJohn Freeman, featuring readings, conversations and performances by Anne Carson, Colum McCann, Tahmima Anam, Honor Moore, Garnette Cadogan and Laura van den Berg. The theme of the inaugural issue is “Arrival,” and the writers will talk about key points of arrival in their life and work. Featuring music from Karachi DJ Mahvesh Murad and art directed by Michael Salu. Sponsored by The New School MFA Program


With FREEMAN’S: Arrival, the renowned literary critic and former editor of Granta John Freeman introduces a unique and fascinating new literary space. Collecting a wide-ranging group of never-before-published pieces centered broadly around a theme, from both emerging voices and the world’s best-known writers, FREEMAN’S will be published twice a year, like a journal, but will feel more substantial, more like an anthology. Beginning appropriately with the theme of “Arrival”, FREEMAN’S promises to be an essential addition to the library of the serious literary reader.

In this inaugural edition of FREEMAN’S, John Freeman brings together the best new fiction, nonfiction, and poetry about that electrifying moment when we arrive. Ranging from “shorts” from David Mitchell, Louise Erdrich and others to poetry by Anne Carson and Ishion Hutchinson, and new work by Lydia Davis, Haruki Murakami, Dave Eggers, Etgar Keret, Laura van den Berg, Aleksandar Hemon, Barry Lopez, and many others, FREEMAN’S marks the debut of an exciting and important new publication, and an indispensable map to the world’s literary landscape.
