This event is now full. Please contact Christy Wensley at [email protected] if you have any questions. 

Join us for an intimate dinner with Patrick Radden Keefe discussing Rogues: True Stories of Grifters, Killers, Rebels and Crooks. From the award winning author of Empire of Pain, Keefe brilliantly explores the stories of his rogues’ gallery. This promises to be a fascinating evening, and we hope that you will join us. This evening is being generously hosted by Colette and Daniel Bennett.

Among twelve enthralling stories, Keefe examines whether a whistleblower who dared to expose money laundering at a Swiss bank is a hero or a fabulist, spends time in Vietnam with Anthony Bourdain, chronicles the quest to bring down a cheerful international black market arms merchant, and profiles a passionate death penalty attorney who represents the “worst of the worst,” among other bravura works of literary journalism.

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.
