The Spring Revel


Join Us for the Spring Revel on April 2, 2024, at Cipriani 42nd Street

Honoring Tobias Wolff

Please join us for our annual Spring Revel on April 2, 2024.

Since 1953, The Paris Review has been a magazine unlike any other: a home for writers and artists who are unafraid to take risks and for work that invites the reader into proximity with another singular consciousness. In our pages, readers can encounter remarkable new voices alongside established names, glimpse behind the scenes of the writing process in in-depth interviews with literary titans, and experience extraordinary visual art.

At the Spring Revel, we’ll gather to celebrate the Review—which, in the past year, has received both the ASME Award for Fiction and a Whiting Literary Magazine Prize—honor writers we admire, and raise crucial funds for the future. Revel proceeds will enable us to continue to publish daring writing and art in print and online; produce our groundbreaking podcast; host inspiring live events; and dream up new projects to support writers and delight readers.

We will present the 2024 Hadada, our award for lifetime achievement in literature, to the inimitable Tobias Wolff, whose stories, memoirs, and novels are as beloved as they are influential. In addition, the George Plimpton Prize for Fiction—named for our founding editor who tirelessly championed early-career writers—will be presented to Moira McCavana. The Susannah Hunnewell Prize—named for our esteemed former publisher—will be awarded to Caleb Crain. (A full list of previous prize winners can be found on our Prizes page.) 

The event, to be held at Cipriani 42nd Street in New York, will begin with a cocktail hour at 7:00 P.M., followed by dinner and program at 8:00 P.M. Tickets will be held at the door—reserve by donating at one of the following levels:
