Join us for an intimate dinner with Colm Tóibín discussing  A Guest at the Feast: Essays. This promises to be a fascinating evening, and we hope that you will join us. This evening is being generously hosted by Laura Bickford and Stephen Graham.

From one of the most engaging and brilliant writers of our time comes a collection of essays about growing up in Ireland during radical change; about cancer, priests, popes, homosexuality, and literature. “Colm Tóibín’s intelligence is as great as his knowledge of literature and his empathetic imagination.” — Joy Williams. We are thrilled to host Tóibín and hope that you will be able to join us. 

Donations to attend this evening are $350. Following your RSVP, you will be sent the address for the dinner. 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.
