2020 PEN America Gala Donations

Table backdrop with the following words in front: “PEN America Gala: Tuesday, December 8, 2020”

The PEN America Gala will merge our annual New York Literary Gala and Los Angeles LitFest Gala into one national, virtual celebration on December 8. Our digital program will be a crucial moment for our community to stand together in recognition of our deserving Honorees and to fortify our mission at a time of extraordinary needs and demands. The fight for creative expression is so important, now more than ever, and we hope you can join us for a unique, one-night-only event to toast to human rights and the power of words.

100% of every dollar raised goes directly to support PEN America’s mission: to defend free expression and celebrate literary excellence.
