Discover an evening's worth of literary events as you explore the Lower East Side Tenement Museum and its immigrant family stories. PEN authors will draw inspiration from the historic apartment settings for their readings on the festival theme: Gender and Power. Following the readings, the authors will join everyone for a reception with food, drink, and book signings.
Each guest will hear two readings and they will choose their author pairings on a first-come, first-served basis. Readings will begin at 6:30, doors will open at 6. Participating authors include Laurie Anderson, Teju Cole, Vivian Gornick, Jennifer Egan, Lisa Ko, Mariposa Fernandez, and Min Jin Lee.
