PEN America and the Brooklyn Museum present an evening of cocktails and conversation centering on Caribbean women writers. The second in their two-part series presents a conversation between Dominican poet and novelist Elizabeth Acevedo, Brooklyn-based Jamaican novelist Nicole Dennis-Benn (author of Here Comes the Sun, named a New York Times “Best Book of the Year”) and Malka Older, Puerto Rican author (Infomocracy and Null States).
This event will take place on Thursday, August 10, 2017, from 6:00-9:30pm, at the Brooklyn Museum (200 Eastern Parkway, Brooklyn, New York). It includes a cocktail hour, a conversation with the writers, and live jazz by Jazz Foundation of America.
