PEN America Winter 2020 Authors’ Evening with Fred P. Hochberg

This dinner will be hosted by Elizabeth and Dale Hemmerdinger on Wednesday, March 11, 2020. 

Former Chairman and President of the Export–Import Bank of the United States Fred P. Hochberg will discuss his book Trade is Not a Four-Letter Word, in which he unravels the mysteries of trade by pulling back the curtain on six everyday products, each with a surprising story to tell: the taco salad, the Honda Odyssey, the banana, the iPhone, the college degree, and the smash hit HBO series Game of Thrones.

This dinner is a private event.

The PEN America Authors’ Evenings are nights of literary dinners in private homes and intimate settings. Please visit the Authors’ Evenings webpage for our full calendar of dinners.
