The New York Times Magazine has announced its first live event in a new series that will showcase programming and conversations inspired by the pages of the magazine’s annual special issues.
New York Times Magazine editor in chief Jake Silverstein will host the NYT Mag Live event on June 7 at the Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco. The magazine’s Design and Technology special issue, scheduled to publish the same day, will serve as the event’s framework.
Times editors and journalists will join global entrepreneurs on stage to discuss how Silicon Valley innovation is changing design around the world.
“Our readers are already highly engaged with our journalism — in print, online and on mobile — and we created NYT Mag Live so they can connect with our journalists directly, in an immediate and interactive forum,” said Jake Silverstein, editor in chief, The New York Times Magazine.
This new consumer event series is a part of NYT Live, The Times’s conferences and live events business. The New York Times Magazine will host additional live events in major U.S. cities later this year.
The June 7 event will take place from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. PT and will include a networking cocktail reception with featured newsmakers and journalists.
