Cynthia Ozick, winner of this year's PEN/Nabokov Award, will read at 7 PM on Tuesday, May 20, at KGB Bar, along with Alex Mindt (Bingham finalist) and Theresa Nelson (Naylor Fellow), in a celebration of the PEN Literary Awards. The evening will be hosted by Elissa Schappell, the chair of the PEN Awards Committee and a co-founder of the great magazine Tin House.
Update: Margaret Jull Costa, who won the PEN Translation Prize for her rendition of The Maias by Eça de Queirós, will also be there.
This event is free and open to the public.
PS. Speaking of Ozick, her recent review of Lionel Trilling's fiction, noted by Scott Esposito, is typically astute.
