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.
