Its members include critics from major papers in Los Angeles, Boston, New York, Philadelphia, and Denver. Its members also include the critics not just of THE WALL Street Journal, The Nation, and The New Yorker, but also of THE VILLAGE Voice, The Boston Herald, and prominent online sites. Second, membership is by election.
