This is a private event. If you would like to be added to the waitlist, please contact [email protected].

Join us for an intimate dinner with Andrea Elliott discussing her Pulitzer-prize winning book, Invisible Child: Poverty, Survival, and Hope in an America City. By turns heartbreaking and revelatory, provocative and inspiring, Invisible Child tells an astonishing story about the power of resilience, the importance of family, and the cost of inequality. Based on nearly a decade of reporting, this book vividly illuminates some of the most critical issues in contemporary America through the life of one remarkable girl. Elliott is a journalist who has documented the lives of poor Americans, Muslim immigrants and other people on the margins of power and is an investigative reporter for The New York Times. This evening is being generously hosted by Edward Tyler Nahem and Tanya Minhas Nahem.

The donation is considered 100% tax-deductible and supports PEN America’s mission to defend writers and free expression at a time of unprecedented need. Your generosity is deeply appreciated.
