Make a Donation to Attend this Dinner
 
You are invited to a private dinner with the English novelist and screenwriter Ian McEwan.
 
The dinner will celebrate the publication of his latest novel Nutshell: A Novel and is a unique opportunity for twenty five guests to hear directly from Mr. McEwan about the book—and his wider body of work—on the eve of the book’s publication. Advanced copies of the book will be available to guests this week.
 
The evening will be hosted by Diane Archer and Stephen Presser and will take place at their home (CPW & W75th St) on Tuesday, September 13. 
 
Nutshell is “a classic tale of murder and deceit… told from a perspective unlike any other.” The Guardian cites the book as “an elegaic masterpiece.” Read their review here along with an interview Ian McEwan gave about the book to The Wall Street Journal (Aug 29).
 
Ian McEwan won the Man Booker Prize in 1997 for Amsterdam; his 2001 novel Atonement was adapted into the 2007 flim starring Keira Knightly, James MacAvoy and Saoirse Ronan, and was nominated for seven Academy Awards; this fall a film adaptation of his 2007 novel On Chesil Beach, which was shortlisted for the 2007 Booker prize, will begin production.
 
Seats at this dinner are available by making a dedicated donation to PEN America and are limited to two per household.
