Book the babysitter because this is the one Pen Parentis Literary Salon you don't want to miss!

The Pen Parentis Literary Salon is more than a fantastic reading series that showcases new and known writers. It's also a supportive community that celebrates the craft of writing and the joys and challenges of writing while parenting.

The $20 suggested donation at our Holiday Salon goes toward basic operating costs and funding the Pen Parentis Fellowship for New Parents.

No other reading series in New York City provides an opportunity for writers and readers to come together and talk with such intimacy about writing and parenting. Please come out and support a great organization and have a great time doing it with live music, raffles, drink specials, book giveaways, and fun galore!
