An Evening with PEN America and NYFA
Readings by Abeer Hoque, Lisa Ko, Sarah Schulman, and Joan Silber
Hosted by Saïd Sayrafiezadeh
The New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) and PEN America present a reading featuring NYFA Literary Fellows and PEN America Members. In celebration of the 30th anniversary of NYFA's fellowship program, this event will bring together writers whose NYFA fellowship helped foster their creative work. Now established in their writing careers, these former NYFA fellows are all Professional Members of PEN America, an organization of writers, editors, and translators fighting to defend free expression and celebrate literature abroad and here in the United States. NYFA Board member, three-time fellowship recipient, and PEN America Member Saïd Sayrafiezadeh will moderate.
