PEN America Fall 2018 Authors’ Evening with Ben Mezrich

This dinner will be hosted by Josh Wilkes in his Soho home on Thursday, November 15, 2018. Cocktails will begin at 6:45pm and dinner will be served at 7:30pm. 

Ben Mezrich will discuss his latest book, Woolly: The True Story of the Quest to Revive One of History’s Most Iconic Extinct Creatures. Science fiction becomes reality in this Jurassic Park-like story of the genetic resurrection of an extinct species: the woolly mammoth. Ben Mezrich has created his own highly addictive genre of nonfiction, authoring sixteen books, with a combined printing of over four million copies. 

Tickets to this dinner are considered a 100% tax-deductible donation to PEN America and are available on a limited basis. Please click below to purchase your ticket(s) and reserve your seat(s).
