Proust Celebration on NY Times Arts Front Page

As part of a year-long celebration of the centennial of Marcel Proust’s Swann’s Way, dozens of French and American writers, artists, and Proust fans, including Ira Glass, Mike Birbiglia, Dominique Ansel (creator of the cronut and pictured above), and author Edmund White participated in a weeklong live reading of the classic at venues across city last week.

To bring Proust’s world to life, PKPR client Moleskine also curated live drawing events for each reading featuring students and alumni from the MFA Illustration as Visual Essay department at the School of Visual Arts.

Coverage highlights included a front page Arts section feature in the New York Times, a pick as one of the five best events of the week by Time Out New York, a behind-the-scenes look at the readings in The New York Observer, and a wonderful photo feature on all of the live sketches in Brain Pickings.
