PEN America Winter 2019 Authors’ Evening with James Clapper

This dinner will be hosted by Diahn and Tom McGrath at their home on Tuesday, May 14, 2019. 

James Clapper will discuss his latest book Facts and Fears: Hard Truths from a Life in Intelligence, which draws from his experience in the United States government as Director of National Intelligence to deliver a candid and compelling account of the intelligence community’s successes–and failures–in facing some of the greatest threats to America.

This dinner is sold out. Please contact Jafreen Uddin at juddin@pen.org to be added to the waitlist.

Proceeds from the PEN America Authors’ Evenings dinners support PEN America’s programming to secure the liberty of persecuted and imprisoned writers around the world, to defend freedom of expression, and to promote literature and international cultural exchange.
