A Message about Lit Fête

We planned to share Lit Fête: A Virtual Celebration of Writers and Writing, on Tuesday, June 9. We recognize, however, that this is not the moment for a literary celebration, and have made the decision to cancel.

We thank everyone in the Paris Review community—past, present, and future—for reading, writing, reflecting, traveling, and learning with us. We look forward to sharing more stories, poems, essays, and events in the future.

The Paris Review is making available several Writers at Work interviews with Black American authors who have provided us—and generations of readers— with guidance and inspiration.
