Join us for an intimate evening of drinks, hors d’oeuvres, and discussion with Esmeralda Santiago discussing Las Madres. This promises to be a fascinating conversation, and we hope that you will join us. This evening is being generously hosted by Ken Miller and Lybess Sweezy.

From the award-winning, best-selling author of When I Was Puerto Rican, comes a powerful novel of family, race, faith, sex, and disaster that moves between Puerto Rico and the Bronx, revealing the lives and loves of five women and the secret that binds them together.

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.
