A Question of Justice
Saturday, May 11, 2019 at 11:00AM

Center for Social Innovation
601 W 26th St
New York, NY 10001

Many Americans agree that our criminal justice system needs thorough reform—but how can public sentiment lead to effective systemic changes? This dynamic debate will feature five of PEN America’s brilliant Writing For Justice Fellows, as well as experts in New York City-based reform efforts. The conversation will use artist Lois Weaver’s experimental “Long Table” model, which fosters dialog about difficult subjects by combining the comfortable informality of a private dinner party setting with the urgency of public debate. Bring your questions, comments, and opinions, and help discuss this defining issue of our time. On behalf of the Art for Justice Fund, PEN America is honored to engage the literary community and confront our era of mass incarceration through the Writing For Justice Fellowship.
