Free With RSVP

The celebratory fifteenth season of Pen Parentis Literary Salons ended last month, but you have a special opportunity to see an encore presentation of “ASPECTS OF LOVE, how to write love” in SUMMER LOVE an event featuring multiply internationally bestselling romance novelist Jennifer Probst, the edgy literary novelist Marcy Dermansky, and the inimitable Chicago-based novelist Gint Aras.

Tuesday, June 13th at 7pm at the glamorous Andaz Wall Street, three authors who write intensely and in very different ways about love, will present readings of their latest works followed by a panel discussion moderated by writers Christina Chiu and M. M. De Voe.

In addition to being incredibly diverse and talented authors, Pen Parentis' featured guests are all also parents - expect intimate discussion of real-world truths, and how they affect us and future generations. The Salons intend to break the stereotype of parent-writer by presenting the enormity of creative writing by authors who happen to also be parents. Since these salons began in January of 2009, they have presented nearly 300 writers to the general public.

The night begins with networking over wine, compliments of Andaz Wall Street. Readings will be followed by Q&A moderated by Pen Parentis founder M. M. De Voe and Salons curator Christina Chiu. The event ends with mingling and book signings. Come join the festivities!  The night kicks off at 7:00 pm, and admission is free. Books will be vended for signings.

If you are a true book-lover, consider joining the Pen Parentis Drop-in Book Club by reading the June Book Club pick: Marcy Dermansky’s The Red Car and arriving at Andaz at 6:30 to discuss the book in a special private pre-salon session. As a special treat, the author will join the conversation. Pen Parentis Book Club is run by Allison Scollar. Pen Parentis Literary Salons are a great place to meet book-loving neighbors as well as industry notables.
