Los Angeles Book Club: Night Sky with Exit Wounds

PEN America and The Edison hope to see you at our April Book Club to discuss Night Sky with Exit Wounds by Ocean Vuong. Hosted by Chiwan Choi.

Free and open to all, both PEN America Members and non-members. Specialty cocktails will be offered all night, and happy hour prices are available.

“[T]errifying, heartbreaking, surreal, and lyrical—I’m not quite sure how a poet can fit so much humanity into so few words… [Vuong] stands at the feet of American poetry and unties the masters’ shoelaces. ‘Night Sky With Exit Wounds’ is a must read and re-read, a book that will be cherished.” – Christopher Soto, Lambda Literary

Members of the Book Club receive a 15 percent discount when purchasing the current book club title at The Last Bookstore. For more information, email ngreen@pen.org.
