A Little Life with Hanya Yanagihara, Thursday, February 25

You are invited to a private dinner with the novelist Hanya Yanagihara.

The dinner will be hosted by Tracy Higgins and Jim Leitner on Thursday, February 25th, and will take place at their TriBeCa apartment.

Hanya will discuss her newest book, A Little Life: A Novel, which was shortlisted for the 2015 Man Booker Prize for Fiction and a National Book Award finalist. Told in rich and resplendent prose, it is a tragic and transcendent hymn to brotherly love, a masterful depiction of heartbreak, and a dark examination of the tyranny of memory and the limits of human endurance.

Praise for A Little Life: “This exquisite, unsettling novel follows four male friends from their meeting as students at a prestigious Northeastern college through young adulthood and into middle age…. The book shifts from a generational portrait to something darker and more tender: an examination of the depths of human cruelty, counterbalanced by the restorative powers of friendship.”—The New Yorker

All proceeds will benefit PEN American Center.
