If you, like us, live in NYC and love an event celebrating authors of every ilk, PEN DIY is totally worth checking out. Each month, PEN America Center hosts an author to speak o the craft of writing: “Building on oral traditions, parables, and the rich history of artists as unpretentious makers, PEN DIY celebrates how literature can be approachable yet unexpected, and how it can help us make sense of our lives.”

April’s PEN DIY, titled “How to be Authentic on Social Media,” will feature Jennifer Weiner, superstar author of novels such as Good in Bed, In Her Shoes, and All Fall Down (the paperback version of which is due out April 7th).  Weiner is also a contributing writer for such publications as The New York Times.


Named one of Forbes’ “25 Working Moms to Follow on Twitter,” we’d say Weiner knows a thing or two about social media. Peep her profile for hilarious parental observations and live-tweet sessions of The Bachelor.

 Friendship author Emily Gould will host the event on Monday, April 6th at 8:00 pm. Tickets available here. BUSTies, make sure to enter promo code ‘tweet’ for a special discount!
