Special note about our Literary Salons – Pen Parentis Literary Salons are made possible in part with public funds from the Manhattan Community Arts Fund, supported by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs and administered by the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council. They are also funded in part by Poets & Writers, Inc. with public funds from The New York State Council on the Arts, a state agency, and by a generous one-time grant from the Sustainable Arts Foundation in California. We thank our sponsors – and urge you to remember that YOUR support of our programming is what allows us to apply for these grants. Thank YOU for your individual support–it means the world to us and is what keeps us going!
