PEN America Authors’ Evening With Jonathan Martin and Alexander Burns

Martin and Burns headshots and This Will Not Pass book cover

Join us for an intimate evening with New York Times reporters Jonathan Martin and Alexander Burns in conversation about This Will Not Pass: Trump, Biden, and the Battle for America’s Future. “Martin and Burns deliver reporting from deep inside both parties with fresh facts and new details on nearly every page about a political system pushed to the brink. When future historians chronicle this time of crisis they will turn to this book as a deeply valuable account of our all too human leaders.” (The Wall Street Journal) This evening is being generously co-hosted by Karen & Dennis Mehiel and Tom Healy & Fred P. Hochberg.

Tickets are $350 for individual tickets and $500 per couple to attend this evening. 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.
