PEN America Virtual Authors’ Evening with Colin Jost

Date: Wednesday, September 16, 2020 NEW DATE
Time: 7:00pm ET / 4:00pm PT
Location: Zoom
Donation to Attend: $125 per ticket

Join us for a special conversation with SNL co-head writer, “Weekend Update” co-anchor and New York Times bestseller Colin Jost to celebrate his newly published memoir A Very Punchable Face. This Authors’ Evening is generously sponsored by Craig Newmark.

With over 15 years at SNL under his belt, Jost is no stranger to the writer’s room, but A Very Punchable Face is his authorial debut. Written with candor and a healthy dose of self-deprecating humor, Jost’s memoir is a collection of essays that give a behind-the-scenes look at his Staten Island upbringing and journey to 30 Rock. A Very Punchable Face is self-aware, vulnerable, and hilarious, and we’re thrilled for the chance to share the room with the brilliant mind behind some of the dumbest (but award-winning) sketches on television.

A $125 donation is required to attend this very special evening. This donation is considered 100 percent tax-deductible and supports PEN America’s mission to defend writers and free expression at a time of unprecedented need.
