Description:

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED FOR AUGUST 14, 2020 

Busboys and Poets has always been a place for artists, activists, and writers of the community to gather and break bread. And while we may be physically distant right now, we can still stay connected and break bread together.

Join us on Zoom for Busboys and Friends: A Virtual Dinner Party held every Friday night at 6 pm. Hosted by CEO and Founder, Andy Shallal with a special dinner guest each week.

Order your favorite meal and beverage from Busboys and Poets, set your table, and tune in for a special dinner with some of the most influential leaders of our time.

This week's very special dinner guest is New York Times bestseller and Pulitzer Prize winner Junot Díaz!

Junot Díaz was born in the Dominican Republic and raised in New Jersey. He is the author of the critically acclaimed Drown; The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, which won the 2008 Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Critics Circle Award; and This Is How You Lose Her, a New York Times bestseller and National Book Award finalist. He is the recipient of a MacArthur “Genius” Fellowship, PEN/Malamud Award, Dayton Literary Peace Prize, Guggenheim Fellowship, and PEN/O. Henry Award. A graduate of Rutgers College, Díaz is currently the fiction editor at Boston Review and the Rudge and Nancy Allen Professor of Writing at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

He is the cofounder of Voices of Our Nation Workshop.

Order your copy of one or more of Junot Diaz's books to ship to your home, or email books@busboysandpoets.com if you would like to place a special order for in-store pickup.

FREE, RSVP to receive the Zoom link.

While this dinner party is free to attend, we kindly ask that you support the author by purchasing a copy of one or more of his books via our partner, Bookshop.org

Your purchase through bookshop.org also helps support local independent bookstores like ours. The books will be shipped directly to your home.
