Nationality[edit]

US, Canadian or both? Grusl 11:14, 25 March 2006 (UTC)

Good question, Grusl. Since he attended high school and did his undergrad in Canada, but was born in Philadelphia (and all his relatives are born/live in Philadelphia), got his PhD in New York and then lived in New York for the entire rest of his life, I changed that to American not Canadian American.--FeralOink (talk) 18:09, 6 February 2016 (UTC)

Adam Gopnik/1 hour Interview[edit]

I've found a wonderful link that is a one hour live interview with Adam Gopnik. He talks about his life and writing with Victoria Lautman (Chicago) in front of a live audience. I wanted to add this link to the Adam Gopnik page on wikipedia and wanted to share it with the community before posting. I've attached the link. It's terrific. http://www.victorialautman.com/ontherecord.shtml#gopnik Corkyshag (talk) 21:18, 30 January 2008 (UTC)

Honors and Appearances[edit]

The paragraph on the Westpark Public Library's award seems inappropriate in scope for this article. The focus is on the award more than on Gopnik and the amount of space dedicated to it does not concord with its importance compared to other awards mentioned (e.g. National Magazine Awards). —Preceding unsigned comment added by 65.13.58.216 (talk) 10:51, 27 December 2010 (UTC)

Picture[edit]

The lead image for this article had been since February 2016 File:Adam_Gopnik.jpg, Gopnik with his daughter in 2014. In March, I replaced it with a picture I took at the David Rubenstein Atrium, File:Adam Gopnik 2016.JPG, and positioned the previous picture further down in the article. Due to the atrium's lighting, the later picture has quite a horrible colour balance. In September, User:Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ) made a crop of Gopnik alone from the former picture and placed it in the lead, File:Adam Gopnik in 2014.png. That image is far better than mine, but now we have the same picture twice in the article. What's to be done? -- Michael Bednarek (talk) 07:09, 20 September 2016 (UTC)
