In partnership with The Dallas Institute and The Dallas Morning News, PEN America Dallas/Fort Worth is excited to host a conversation with A. Kendra Greene and Fowzia Karimi on Tuesday, October 27 at 6pm CT.

This event is the third in a three-part series, where six prominent writers engage in candid conversation through a variety of mediums about the issues that matter most to us in this historical moment and how public discourse, stories, and images influence what we aspire to achieve in the realm of action.

Please register in advance for the event here. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about attending the event.
