Emily Nussbaum THU, MAY 4, 2017, 7:30 PM Town Hall Seattle Co-Presented by Seattle Times  

This event is part of SAL's Women You Need to Know (WYNK) Series. 

"For television reviews written with an affection that never blunts the shrewdness of her analysis or the easy authority of her writing."            —The Pulitzer Prize Committee

"We see television growing up at the same moment that it has a critic worthy of it.”
                                                                                 —David Remnick, The New Yorker

"Unlike most art forms, a network TV series is always under construction […]When it’s a particularly thoughtful show, it also reflects the world beyond Hollywood. It’s the rough draft that doubles as the published product."                                           —Emily Nussbaum

Emily Nussbaum has been the television critic for The New Yorker since 2011. She has written about “The Good Wife,” “Girls,” “Mad Men,” and “Scandal,” among other shows. Previously, she worked at New York for seven years, editing the Culture Pages (and creating the Approval Matrix) and writing both features and criticism. She won a 2014 National Magazine Award for Columns and Commentary, and she is the recipient of the 2016 Pulitzer Prize in Criticism.
