LONDON: Dave Eggers will deliver this year’s PEN HG Wells Lecture on the theme of digital human rights. Sunday, December 16. Tickets available here.
Bianca Giaever is a radio producer turned filmmaker turned artist turned back to radio producer. She’s done radio stories for This American Life and Radiolab. Her college film “the Scared is scared" is still the most popular thing she has ever made. Her short film “Videos 4 U: I Love You” won her a Webby Award and Daytime Emmy — the latter in a category previously dominated by The Macy’s Day Parade. For fun, she organizes a monthly event called “Dinner For Strangers,” which is exactly what it sounds like. If you don’t know her, you should come. She went to Middlebury College and lives in Brooklyn. Check out the rest of her work at www.biancagiaever.com, and please write her a letter!
