Ring in the new year among fellow PEN America members and supporters at our annual New Year New Books Parties in New York City and Los Angeles! As we welcome 2024, let us also gather in celebration and defense of the written word. The past year has continued to see alarming drives in legislatures, school districts, and communities nationwide to ban books that bring diversity and representation to our shelves. We invite members and allies to join us in standing against censorship and for the joys that literature brings to our lives.
