Date: Thursday, December 2, 2021
Time: 7:00pm ET / 4:00pm PT
Location: Zoom
Suggested Donation to Attend: $125 per person

Join us for an intimate evening with Admiral James Stavridis discussing The Sailor’s Bookshelf: Fifty Books to Know the Sea. Admiral Stavridis, a leader in military, international affairs, and national security circles, shares his love of the sea and some of the sources of that affection in his latest work. This evening is hosted by Alan Jones.

The Sailor’s Bookshelf offers synopses of 50 books that illustrate the history, importance, lore, and lifestyle of the oceans. Stavridis colors those descriptions with glimpses of his own service—“sea stories” in popular parlance—that not only clarify his choices but show why he is held in such high esteem among his fellow sailors. Admiral Stavridis has published 10 books and hundreds of articles in leading journals around the world, including the recent novel 2034: A Novel of the Next World War, which was a New York Times bestseller. He is a contributing editor for TIME magazine and the chief international security analyst for NBC News.

A donation is suggested to attend this very special evening. The 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.
