PEN America Fall 2016 Author’s Evening with Clara Bingham

Make a Donation to Attend this Dinner

You are invited to a private dinner with writer Clara Bingham. 

The dinner will celebrate her latest book, Witness to the Revolution: Radicals, Resisters, Vets, Hippies, and the Year American Lost Its Mind and Found Its Soul, and is a unique opportunity for twenty five guests to hear directly from Ms. Bingham about the book and her wider body of work. 

The evening will be hosted by Cathy Graham at her Upper East Side home on Tuesday, October 18th. 

Praise for Witness to the Revolution: “This oral history will enable readers to see that era in a new light and with fresh sympathy for the motivations of those involved. While Bingham’s is one of many retrospective looks at that period, it is one of the most immediate and personal.”—Booklist

Clara Bingham is a journalist, author and documentary film producer whose work has focused on social justice and women’s issues. Before she began working on Witness, Bingham produced a documentary that exposed the ravages of mountain top removal coal mining in Appalachia. “The Last Mountain” premiered at the Sundance Film festival in 2011, screened in theaters in over 60 cities, and won the International Documentary Association’s Pare Lorentz Award.

Bingham’s second book, Class Action: The Landmark Case that Changed Sexual Harassment Law, which she co-wrote with Laura Leedy Gansler, (Doubleday in 2002) was adapted into the 2005 feature film “North Country” (Warner Bros.) starring Charlize Theron and Francis McDormand. Class Action was a Los Angeles Times best book of the year and won the AAUW Speaking Out For Justice Award.

Seats at this dinner are available by making a dedicated donation to PEN America.
