UPDATE: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this event has been postponed to September 2020. Thank you for understanding, and stay tuned for more information from Wendy Martin, Director of PEN West.


PEN West is delighted to invite you to our annual celebration of recently published books! It has been our tradition to celebrate the authors of books that have been published in the past year.

Have you had work published or produced since May 2019? If so, we want to celebrate your successes! If you have published a book within this timeframe, then we invite you to give a talk—no more than five minutes, please—about your book. Please also bring copies of your book to sell to interested readers.

We look forward to celebrating our community’s literary achievements with you!

Please RSVP by emailing PEN West Director, Wendy Martin, at [email protected], and you will automatically receive directions for this event.
