Since this one usually sells out quick, we wanted to give you a heads up that tickets for The New Yorker Festival went on sale today.

This year's festival takes place October 1-3 at various New York City locations. There is quite a bit going on throughout the weekend. Friday night is dubbed fiction night and features discussions between Sherman Alexie and Dave Eggers, Nicole Krauss and Salman Rushdie and Jonathan Safran Foer and Martin Amis. On Saturday there are a series of political panels, discussions between writers and their subjects, a cartoon corner and evening talks with the likes of Wes Anderson and Jamie Foxx. Sunday's fare includes a variety of things from a discussion at the Metropolitan Museum of Art to a trip out to Coney Island.
