PEN America Virtual Author’s Evening with Lawrence Wright
Date: Thursday, June 10, 2021
Time: 7:00pm ET / 4:00pm PT
Donation to Attend: $125 per person
Join PEN America for an intimate evening with Lawrence Wright, Pulitzer Prize winner, staff writer for The New Yorker, and author of The Plague Year: America in the Time of Covid. This event is generously sponsored by Colette and Daniel Bennett.
From the Pulitzer Prize–winning author of The Looming Tower: an unprecedented, momentous account of COVID-19—its origins, its wide-ranging repercussions, and the ongoing global fight to contain it. Following the past year, from the fateful first moments of the outbreak in China to the storming of the U.S. Capitol to the extraordinary vaccine rollout, Wright’s The Plague Year tells the story of COVID-19 in authoritative, galvanizing detail and with the full drama of events on both a global and intimate scale, illuminating the medical, economic, political, and social ramifications of the pandemic.
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.
