The New York Times Presents “Look West”

The New York Times has designed a new event for us here on the West Coast. It is starting off in San Francisco and then it is moving down to L.A. It is called “Look West” which is going to put a whole new spin on art, technology, and media which is prompt discussion with New York Time Journalist in front of live Audience. The series of events will start October 29th in San Francisco and writer Dave Eggers along with New York Time book reviewed Pamela Paul will be there for conversation. These event is designed to coincide with the book release “By the Book: Writers on Literature and the Literary Life from The New York Times Book Review,” in which Mr. Eggers is featured.


Many people have started to say that the project is a great way to bring people together from all over; “With so many talented innovators in media, technology and the arts hailing from the West, our new event series, in collaboration with Bank of the West, is the perfect way to bring these innovators together with our audiences throughout the Western U.S.,” said Yasmin Namini, SVP, chief consumer officer, The New York Times.  “We’re looking forward to what promises to be a fantastic conversation with Dave Eggers and to announcing additional events in new Western cities in the months to come.”  

“We’ve been longtime fans of how The New York Times has curated global dialogues among their own journalists and the world’s most interesting thinkers and leaders, and we’re thrilled to now be working with them,” said Ann von Germeten, chief marketing officer, Bank of the West.  “Through our collaboration, we’re building a first-of-its-kind series of truly special experiences that can only be found in the West.  We’re looking forward to an intriguing, intimate and in-depth series of can’t-miss conversations on topics that are uniquely Western in spirit and a perfect fit for our clients and communities.”
