Please join PEN in mourning the loss of Sarah E. Wright, a long-time PEN Member, and esteemed novelist.

A tribute to her life and work  will be held on Saturday, November 14 from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Ethical Culture Society at 64th St. and Central Park West.

“A writer of extraordinary feeling and compassion for the downtrodden, a woman and activist of unwavering honesty and conviction, Wright was as committed to her writing as she was to the struggle for civil and human rights. Still, closest to her heart were the causes of peace and the liberation of her people. Like her idol Paul Robeson, she saw no separation between her art and her politics—they were a unity of resistance against injustice. “
