Adam Gopnik

For more than thirty years, Adam Gopnik has written about artistic culture from every angle in the pages of the New Yorker and of his own books. After graduating from McGill University, Gopnik moved to New York City in 1986 and began his career at the New Yorker. He served as the magazine’s art critic for nearly a decade and as the Paris correspondent from 1995–2000. He reflected on his years in Paris in his book Paris to the Moon (2001). In his books, Gopnik has analyzed and ruminated on many facets of culture and the things that create it, such as food (The Table Comes First, 2012) and the season of winter (Winter, 2011). In Through the Children’s Gate (2007), Gopnik paints a portrait of New York City and the ways the metropolis was changed by September 11. In 2013, Gopnik was named a Chevalier of the Order of Arts and Letters in France. He has been honored with the National Magazine award three times. His latest book is At the Strangers’ Gate, a memoir of moving to New York City in the mid-1980s.
