Adam Gopnik, author and essayist, New York City

August 1, 2009

Adam Gopnik is an author and essayist, and a longtime staff writer for The New Yorker. He and his family lived for five years in Paris; his book Paris To The Moon was a result of those experiences. In 2005 Hyperion published his children’s novel The King In The Window, about Oliver, an American boy living in Paris. Earlier this year, The New Yorker published Gopnik’s essay “Freeing The Elephants: What Babar Brought.” We visited him in his Upper East Side apartment on a steamy summer afternoon to hear his thoughts on Babar, and on more general observations about the craft of writing for children.
