PEN America Winter 2019 Authors’ Evening with Nell Scovell

This dinner will be hosted by Pam and Peter Barbey at their home on Thursday, March 7, 2019. 

Nell Scovell will discuss her latest book Just the Funny Parts: … And a Few Hard Truths About Sneaking Into the Hollywood Boys’ Club, a juicy and scathingly funny insider look at how pop culture gets made. For more than thirty years, writer, producer and director Nell Scovell worked behind the scenes of iconic TV shows, including The Simpsons, Late Night with David Letterman, Murphy Brown, NCIS, The Muppets, and Sabrina, the Teenage Witch, which she created and executive produced.
