The Spring Revel

Join Us in Honoring Jamaica Kincaid
Cipriani 42nd Street, NYC
April 12, 2022

In 2020 and 2021, The Paris Review suspended our annual fete and prize-giving ceremony, the Spring Revel, for the first time in over a decade. As a not-for-profit organization, we depend on the Revel for the funds to publish our quarterly magazine of exceptional prose, poetry, interviews, and art; to offer exciting new literary experiences, including our lively website and unique podcast; and to bring our community together at readings and celebrations. We look forward to coming together again safely for the Revel on April 12, 2022, at Cipriani 42nd Street in New York, where we will be presenting Jamaica Kincaid, a truly remarkable writer, with the Hadada, our award for lifetime achievement in literature. In addition, the Plimpton Prize will be presented to an emerging fiction writer whose work we have published during the past year (a full list of previous prize winners can be found on our Prizes page). Join us by purchasing tickets, or a table that seats a total of ten guests, at one of the following levels:

Friend Ticket $1,000
Plimpton Circle Ticket $2,500

Patron Table $10,000
Benefactor Table $25,000
Underwriter Table $50,000
Vice-Chair Table $100,000

The Paris Review Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Tickets are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. $275 per ticket, in exchange for goods and services, is nondeductible.
A donation of $2,500 or more secures your membership in the Plimpton Circle.
To be listed in the program as a member of the Benefit Committee, purchase a ticket or table by December 15, 2021.
