DRINKS WILL BE SERVED TO TOAST THE PASSING OF THE HIPSTER
n+1 will host a book party for What Was the Hipster?: A Sociological Investigation at Spoonbill & Sugartown on October 29, 2010 at 7 pm.
Who was the turn-of-the-century hipster? Who is free enough of the hipster taint to write its history without contempt or nostalgia? Why are we tempted to declare the neo-hipster moment over, when the hipster’s “global brand” has just reached apotheosis? Please join n+1 editors and contributors at Spoonbill & Sugartown to celebrate the launch of our new book, which the Guardian called, “perhaps the most comprehensive examination of this contemporary manifestation . . .a more withering assessment of youth culture is hard to imagine.”
n+1 is a thrice-yearly print journal of politics, literature, and culture.
