CANCELLED: In Conversation: Sergio De La Pava

Join 2013’s PEN/Robert Bingham W. Prize winner Sergio De La Pava and members of PEN’s Prison Writing Committee for a conversation about the realities, failures and individuals trapped inside the United States justice system. Speaking on themes from his debut novel, A Naked Singularity, De La Pava helps to shine a light on PEN’s important Prison Writing Program. For more than four decades, this program has connected those incarcerated in federal, state, and local prisons with writers on the outside, and it has quietly inspired change and transformation in writers on both sides of the wall. Don’t miss this dialogue between one of our most exciting young writers and those who keep our Prison Writing Program going.
