Bring author and The New Yorker staff writer Adam Gopnik to your book club at your home! Gopnik's new book A Thousand Small Sanities: The Moral Adventure of Liberalism will debut May 14, 2019.

Adam Gopnik has been contributing to The New Yorker since 1986. During his tenure at the magazine, he has written fiction, humor, book reviews, profiles, and reported pieces from abroad. He was the magazine's art critic from 1987 to 1995, and the Paris correspondent from 1995 to 2000. From 2000 to 2005, he wrote a journal about New York life. His books, ranging from essay collections about Paris and food to children's novels, include Paris to the Moon; The King in the Window; Through the Children's Gate: A Home in New York; Angels and Ages: A Short Book About Darwin, Lincoln, and Modern Life; The Table Comes First: Family, France, and the Meaning of Food; Winter: Five Windows on the Season; and, most recently, At the Strangers' Gate: Arrivals in New York. Gopnik has three National Magazine awards, for essays and for criticism, and also the George Polk Award for Magazine Reporting. In March of 2013, Gopnik was awarded the medal of Chevalier of the Order of Arts and Letters. He lectures widely, and, in 2011, delivered the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's Massey Lectures. His first musical, The Most Beautiful Room in New York, opened in 2017 at the Long Wharf Theatre in New Haven.
