The New Criterion

Quite simply, the best cultural review in the world
- John O’Sullivan


Celebrate the holidays with The New Criterion!

by Emily Esfahani Smith

Posted: Nov 20, 2012 01:20 PM

The New Criterion and the staff of Encounter Books invite our Friends, Young Friends, and authors to join us to celebrate the holiday season. We will be gathering for drinks, crudites, and general merriment on Thursday December 13 from 6pm to 8pm. We hope to see you there. Please RSVP to me, Emily Smith, for location at smith[at]  

If you are interested in attending, please consider joining our Friends or Young Friends program for exclusive invitations to this and other events. To give you a taste of the kind of intellectually stimulating events we host--and which you can experience firsthand in New York!--next week, we are hosting a symposium on "America's Fourth Revolution" at the Princeton Club, which you can read more about here.

To become part of our Friends and Young Friends circle, follow this link.

About ArmaVirumque


( AHR-mah wih-ROOM-kweh)


In the Aeneid, the Roman poet Virgil sang of "arms and a man" (Arma virumque cano). Month in and month out, The New Criterion expounds with great clarity and wit on the art, culture, and political controversies of our times. With postings of reviews, essays, links, recs, and news, Armavirumque seeks to continue this mission in accordance with the timetable of the digital age.
