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.
