MARQUETTE – Eve Bowen will give a presentation titled "My Life at the New York Review of Books" at 7:30 p.m. Monday, July 18, at the Women's Federated Clubhouse. The talk is free and open to the public.
Bowen is on the staff of the New York Review of Books, which was established during the New York publishing strike in 1963 and has a national circulation of more than 125,000. It is billed by Esquire as "the premier literary-intellectual magazine in the English language."
A graduate of Reed College and the Radcliffe Publishing Course, Bowen worked in the print advertising department at Alfred A. Knopf before joining the Review in 1998 as an assistant editor. She also serves as copy chief of the magazine's "classics" series. In addition to her work with the Review, she proofreads for several book publishers.
Bowen has worked on books by writers including Joan Didion, Gabriel Garcia Marque, Cormac McCarthy and V.S. Naipaul.
