PEN America Winter 2019 Authors’ Evening with Jodi Picoult and Jennifer Finney Boylan

This dinner will be hosted by Mimi Sternlicht at her home on Thursday, April 4, 2019. 

Jodi Picoult will discuss her latest book A Spark of Light, a novel centering around a gunman’s assault on a reproductive health clinic, told in a daring and enthralling narrative structure that counts backward through the hours of the standoff.

Jennifer Finney Boylan will discuss her latest book Long Black Veil, an intensely atmospheric thriller that explores the meaning of identity, loyalty, and love about a woman whose family and identity are threatened by the secrets of her past.
