Centennial: The Believer Presents QNA: The Art of the Interview


What makes a good question? What is a bad response? Why is dialogue one of the most enduring forms of literature? The Believer magazine presents a panel of four distinguished American interviewers discussing the art of the interview: legendary television host and author Dick Cavett; New York Times writer Claudia Dreifus; author and editor Kenneth Goldsmith; and Lorin Stein, editor of The Paris Review. The discussion will be followed by a short reading of a self-interview, written by author and Saturday Night Live writer Simon Rich, performed by Paulo Costanzo, and a presentation of Darren O'Donnell's relational theater piece, Q+A. The event will be hosted by Believer interview editors Sheila Heti and Ross Simonini.
