PEN America Author’s Evening with Felix Gillette and John Koblin
This event is now full. Please contact Maris Endres at [email protected] if you would like to be added to the waitlist.
Join us for an intimate dinner with Felix Gillette and John Koblin discussing It’s Not TV: The Spectacular Rise, Revolution and Future of HBO. This promises to be a fascinating evening, and we hope that you will join us. This evening is being generously hosted by Evangeline Morphos.
HBO’s own behind-the-scenes story told by veteran media reporters Gillette and Koblin is as complex, compelling, and innovative as the dramas the network created, driven by unorthodox executives who pushed the boundaries of what viewers understood as television at the turn of the century. It’s Not TV is the deeply reported, definitive story of one of America’s most daring and popular cultural institutions, laying bare HBO’s growth, dominance, and vulnerability within the capricious media landscape over the past fifty years.
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.
If you have any questions, please contact Maris Endres at [email protected].
