PEN America Author’s Evening with Stacy Schiff

Join us for an intimate dinner with Stacy Schiff discussing The Revolutionary: Samuel Adams. This promises to be a fascinating evening, and we hope that you will join us. This evening is being generously hosted by Alan Jones and Ashley Garrett.

The Revolutionary is a revelatory biography from a Pulitzer Prize-winner about the most essential Founding Father—the one who stood behind the change in thinking that produced the American Revolution. The Revolutionary was one of Barack Obama’s and Oprah’s Best Books of 2022, and was also named on lists for The New York Times, The New Yorker, TIME, USA Today, New York Magazine, and The Boston Globe. Schiff’s latest is “a glorious book that is as entertaining as it is vitally important.” – Ron Chernow
