Date: Wednesday, March 17, 2021
Time: 7:00pm ET / 4:00pm PT
Location: Zoom
Donation to Attend: $125 per person

Join us for a special conversation with Elliot Ackerman and Admiral James Stavridis on their new novel, 2034A Novel of the Next World War.

The collaboration of two former military officers and award-winning authors, 2034 is a chillingly authentic, geopolitical thriller that imagines a naval clash between the United States and China in the South China Sea in 2034—and the path from there to a nightmarish global conflagration. We are very excited to be joined by Ackerman and Stavridis to discuss their unnerving vision of the future and the path that may lead to it.

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.
