PEN: Authors and Audiences

Where: Cultural Services of the French Embassy, 972 5th Ave., New York City

A writer spends considerable time envisaging his or her readers. But as a manuscript makes its way across the editorial labyrinth—through the hands of editors, agents, publishers and booksellers—the imagined readers become elusive. Editor and author Albert Mobilio leads a fascinating panel discussion exploring the wide gulf between a writer’s desired audience and the readers they ultimately find.

With Mario Bellatin, Laurence Cossé, Yael Hedaya, Manuel de Lope, Asaf Schurr, and Irvine Welsh; moderated by Albert Mobilio

Free and open to the public. No reservations required.

Co-sponsored by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy and Bookforum
