PEN America Virtual Author’s Evening with David Michaelis

Date: Tuesday, February 2

Time: 7:00pm ET / 4:00pm PT

Location: Zoom

Donation to Attend: $125 per person

Join us for a special conversation with critically acclaimed David Michaelis on his new biography Eleanor. The evening is generously sponsored by Bridget Colman.

Bestselling author Michaelis presents a stunning portrait of America’s longest-serving First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt in the first single-volume cradle-to-grave biography in six decades. Eleanor chronicles the fascinating life of Roosevelt, an avatar of democracy whose ever-expanding agency as diplomat, activist, and humanitarian made her one of the world’s most widely admired and influential women. An expert storyteller, Michaelis’ riveting work is not just a comprehensive biography of a key player in American history, but it is also an inspiring story of elegance, grace, and morality.

A $125 donation is required to attend this very special evening. This donation is considered 100 percent 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.


Space will be limited to 25 guests to facilitate audience participation and discussion. Following your RSVP, you will be sent the Zoom meeting invitation. This is a private video meeting, and only guests who are on the RSVP list will be permitted to join.
