PEN America Center, A Public Space Magazine and Strand Book Store Present: Eva Zeisel - The Life of a Remarkable Woman

November 13: 7:30PM 8:30PM

Falsely accused of an assassination plot against Stalin, Eva Zeisel was imprisoned for 16 months, 12 of those in solitary confinement. Some of her prison experiences formed the basis for the famous book Darkness at Noon, written by her childhood love Arthur Koestler. Zeisel went on to become an acclaimed artist. Come and hear close friends, colleagues and followers discuss her amazing life on what would be her 106th birthday. This event will include a reading of Eva's prison memoirs from the new e-book "Eva Zeisel: A Soviet Prison Memoir," and will feature audio recordings of Eva herself.

Admission is $12, which includes a copy of A Public Space Issue 14, and purchase can be made at our registers or at the door to the event. Admits one person. The event will be located in the Strand's 3rd floor Rare Book Room at our store at 828 Broadway at 12th Street.
