PEN Out Loud: Lest We Forget

Wednesday December 12: 7:00PM 8:00PM

Buy a $15 gift card in-store at the event to attend. This event will take place in the Rare Book Room, located on the 3rd floor of the Strand and accessible via the elevator next door at 826 Broadway.

This December, join PEN America and the Strand Book Store as we embark on a retrospective of 2018 through the eyes of some of our most talented authors.

Amitava Kumar’s Immigrant, Montana blends the traditional coming of age novel with the story of an Indian immigrant coming to America, in a book that was referred to as “bio-fiction.” Wayetú Moore’s She Would Be King weaves together the historical facts of the founding of Liberia with magical realism, bringing together characters from all corners of the African diaspora. Together, these authors will speak about their work, this year’s news cycles, and what it means to work as a writer in an era of “fake news” and “alternative facts.”

PEN Out Loud is a partnership between Strand Book Store & PEN America. Ticketed guests may receive emails and updates from both organizations.
