PEN America Virtual Author’s Evening with Fareed Zakaria

Fareed Zakaria headshot and "Ten Lessons for a Post-Pandemic World" book cover

Date: Thursday, June 17, 2021 (rescheduled from April 29, 2021)
Time: 8:00pm ET / 5:00pm PT
Location: Zoom
Donation to Attend: $125 per person

Join us for a special conversation with Fareed Zakaria on his new book, Ten Lessons for a Post-Pandemic World.

Zakaria, a CNN host and bestselling author, helps readers to understand the nature of a post-pandemic world: the political, social, technological, and economic consequences that may take years to unfold. Written in the form of 10 “lessons,” covering topics from natural and biological risks to the rise of “digital life” to an emerging bipolar world order, Zakaria helps readers to begin thinking beyond the immediate effects of COVID-19. Ten Lessons for a Post-Pandemic World speaks to past, present, and future, and while urgent and timely, is sure to become an enduring reflection on life in the early 21st century. We are honored to be joined by Zakaria to discuss his vision for a post-COVID future and what steps we can and should take to get there.
