Join us for a Virtual Authors’ Evening!

Pre-pandemic, these literary dinners, which have become beloved fixtures of New York City’s social and cultural calendars, offered uniquely intimate settings in private homes for in-depth discussions with celebrated authors. We hope to continue our in-person dinners in the fall, but until then we plan to continue hosting these on the Zoom platform until the risk to convene in person has subsided.

Proceeds from the events help support PEN’s programming to secure the liberty of persecuted and imprisoned writers from around the world, to defend freedom of expression wherever it is threatened, and to promote literature and international cultural exchange.
