Dead Wake with Erik Larson, Wednesday, February 24

You are invited to a private dinner with journalist and author Erik Larson.

The dinner will be hosted by Kate Manning and Carey Dunne on Wednesday, February 24, and will take place at their home on East 95th Street.

All proceeds will benefit PEN American Center.
