NEW! Pen Parentis advisory board member Allison Scollar heads our brand-new Pen Parentis book club. She is currently collecting names of people in the NYC area who wish to meet monthly for book discussion — contact us if you would be interested in participating, or to find out more. Please use the subject line “book club.”

The book club will read one of the books upcoming at a salon and then meet with that author for an exclusive conversation moderated and led by Allison. There will be an online discussion option as well so if you do not live in the NYC area, you can still express your interest. For the time being, the online discussions are on Facebook. Click here to join. 

Our next book club selection is THE ART OF CONFIDENCE by Wendy Lee. Read the book and show up at 6:30pm on Tuesday, April 11th (just before the Salon) for an in-person discussion with the book’s author about her “brainy, emotionally sophisticated” book.

And if you happen not to finish the book before the Book Club meets, it’s okay – you can still attend the Salon guilt-free, and join in the conversations on our Pen Parentis Book Club Facebook group.

We are excited about this new program and hope you are too! If you are not on Facebook and can not attend this event but would like to be kept in the loop, please bookmark this page. Our book club has no minimum commitment. Read the books that interest you–meet the authors you want to meet! We are happy to have you, whenever you can make it.
