PEN America Winter 2019 Authors’ Evening with Elif Batuman

This dinner will be hosted by David and Shelley Sonenberg at their home on Thursday, February 21, 2019. 

Elif Batuman will discuss her latest book The Idiot, a tender, funny portrait, devoid of sentimentality, of a young woman during a disorienting and pivotal year in college, where she learns the intricacies of language and love.
