PEN America Fall 2018 Authors’ Evening with Andrew Yang

This dinner will be hosted by Mimi Sternlicht in her Upper East side home on Wednesday, October 10, 2018, with cocktails at 7:00pm and dinner served at 8:00pm. 

Andrew Yang will discuss his book The War on Normal People, an eye-opening look at how new technologies are erasing millions of jobs before our eyes-and a rallying cry for the urgent steps America must take, including Universal Basic Income, to stabilize our economy. Andrew is an entrepreneur, the founder of Venture for America, and a 2020 Democratic presidential candidate.

This dinner is sold out. Please contact Jafreen Uddin at juddin@pen.org for more information and to be added to the waiting list.
