The Ivy Singles Social Club November Event at the Pen Arts Building

At 1300 17th Street NW (by the corner of N Street NW) Washington, D.C. 20036

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 Victorian 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). One of the later residents was Todd Lincoln, son of President Abraham Lincoln).

The National League of American Pen Women is a nonprofit organization of professional women in arts, letters, and music that was founded in 1897. Its mission is to support and promote creative excellence and professional standards among women in the arts.

Refreshments include hors d'oeuvres and a cash bar (white wine, beer, soda, water).
