Friday, May 31, 2019

6:30 to 9:00 p.m.

Join us for an evening of exceptional company and conversation at the Pen Arts Building and Art Museum, home of the National League of Pen Women. The Pen Arts Building is an elegant historic mansion located in Washington’s Dupont Circle neighborhood. It was the favorite mansion on the 48th Annual Dupont Circle House Tour.

The twenty-room, Washington Troubadour mansion was designed as a private residence for opera singer Sarah Whittemore. Her next home was Whittemore House, home of the Woman’s National Democratic Club. Later President’s Lincoln’s son Todd Lincoln lived there.

The National League of American Pen Women is a nonprofit organization of professional women in arts, letters, and music that was founded in 1897 when women journalists were not permitted to join the National Press Club. The League became a professional organization for women writers, artists and composers. Its mission is to support and promote creative excellence and professional standards among women in the arts.

We’ll have hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar with white wine, beer, soda, and water.
