PEN America Winter 2020 Authors’ Evening with Louis Begley and George Packer

This dinner will be hosted by Jacqueline Weld and Jeannette Watson Sanger on Tuesday, April 7, 2020. 
 
 

Louis Begley will discuss his upcoming book The New Life of Hugo Gardner, a spot-on satire of the world of New York’s aging elite that uncovers the unexpected delights a late-in-life change can offer.

George Packer will discuss his latest book Our Man: Richard Holbrooke and the End of the American Century, a nonfiction narrative that is both intimate and epic in its revelatory portrait of an extraordinary and deeply flawed man and the elite spheres of society and government he inhabited.
