7 – 9:30PM
As seen in the New Yorker, New York Times, Time Out NY (critics pick) and Four Seasons Magazine: Three incredible writers, JESSICA SHATTUCK, XAVIER TREVINO, and returning Pen Parentis Fellow WHITNEY TERRELL, flash a spotlight on WAR. From the point of view of refugees to soldiers, sometimes even using embedded journalistic techniques, these Pen Parentis authors share their experiences. Join us to hear how these writers, who are all also parents, balance their creative writing careers with their home lives without losing touch with the outside world. This timely event launches the impressive 16th Season of the reknown Downtown series that shatters parental stereotypes as it celebrates the diverse creative work of writers that are also parents.
