This event is now full. Please email [email protected] if you would like to be added to the wait list. 

Join us for an intimate dinner with Paul Goldberger discussing Why Architecture Matters. This promises to be a fascinating evening, and we hope that you will join us. In his groundbreaking work, Goldberger writes that architecture “brings delight and sadness and perplexity and awe along with a roof over our heads.” In Why Architecture Matters, Goldberger shows us how that works in examples ranging from a small Cape Cod cottage to the vast, flowing Prairie houses of Frank Lloyd Wright, from the Lincoln Memorial to the Guggenheim Bilbao. This evening is being generously hosted by Tom Healy and Fred P. Hochberg. 


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 Christy Wensley at [email protected].
