Two standout NYRB events from earlier this winter have been archived and posted online.
The first, “The Intimate Worlds of Colette,” was part of the Mechanics’ Institute’s three-day celebration of the 150th birthday of Colette, whose novels Chéri and The End of Chéri were recently translated by Paul Eprile and published by NYRB Classics in November 2022. Both Eprile and the author of the introduction of the NYRB Classics edition, Judith Thurman, took part in the event along with the writer and translator Zack Rogow.

The second, a conversation between Kilometer 101 author Maxim Osipov and the essayist and critic Becca Rothfeld, was part of Brookline Booksmith’s Transnational Reading Series. An archive of the event is available below:
