IMPORTANT: Spring Authors’ Evenings to be Rescheduled

Following increased concerns about the COVID-19 virus and out of an abundance of caution for the safety of our hosts, authors, guests, and staff, our remaining Winter/Spring 2020 Authors’ Evening dinners are being rescheduled for the fall. We are closely following the guidance being provided by health agencies at the city, state, and federal levels and will continue to update this site with new dates as they are determined. We thank you for your patience and understanding.

The PEN America Authors’ Evenings are nights of literary dinners in private homes and intimate settings in New York City. 

Proceeds from the dinners 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.
