PEN America presents
An in-depth conversation about writing and activism in an era of mass incarceration with Donna Hylton and Piper Kerman
Saturday, October 27, 2018 at 7:00PM

45 Bleecker Street
New York, NY 10012

Join PEN America in welcoming the inaugural 2018 Writing For Justice Fellows at Authoring Advocacy: a conversation between Justice Now advocate Theresa Martinez and best-selling author Rachel Kushner. Martinez and Kushner will engage in a dialogue about the challenges that activists, writers, and formerly incarcerated people face in the collective pursuit to bear witness to, and understand, the prison industrial complex. The discussion will focus on Martinez’s experience as a woman of color coming home from prison, and the work she does to help both herself and others, against almost insurmountable odds. Stay after the conversation for a meet-and-greet reception with the 2018 Fellows.
