On Sunday, November 11th, at 7 pm, at Southpaw PEN American Center will launch a new literary series called PENultimate Lit which brings together notable writers and artists to explore the intersection of literature and the arts in an attempt to discern what, in the 21st Century, makes writing really matter.
Participants in this first PENultimate Lit event include novelist Amanda Stern, author of the acclaimed The Long Haul; writer and professor Jonathan Baumbach; and acclaimed filmmaker Noah Baumbach, whose most recent film “Margot at the Wedding” premiered at the New York Film Festival on October 7th. Stern will host the evening, and topics of discussion will range from Noah Baumbach’s most recent to the narrative relationship between film and fiction—particularly in an age that loves the image.
Tickets for PENultimate Lit: Film are $10 and available in advance through Southpaw’s web site: http://spsounds.com/.
