Biographers International Organization will present its third annual Editorial Excellence Award to Nan A. Talese, senior vice president of Doubleday and publisher and editorial director of Nan A. Talese/Doubleday. Please join us on Wednesday, October 5, 2016, in celebrating her extraordinary publishing career.

Over the course of fifty years, Nan has edited and published some of the most distinguished novelists and nonfiction writers of her time, including works of biography by Peter Ackroyd, Deirdre Bair, Thomas Cahill, Judy Collins, Kirsten Downey, Benita Eisler, Mia Farrow, Antonia Fraser, Francoise Gilot, Anne C. Heller, A.E. Hotchner, Thomas Keneally, Anthony Lukas, Ted Morgan, George Plimpton, Phyllis Rose, Janet Wallach, and many others.

Please join us for wine, hors d'oeuvres, and a celebration of Nan Talese’s work on behalf of American and British authors, with a discussion of her legendary career, of the pleasures and challenges of editing biography, and of the state of the art of serious biography, non-fiction in general, and literary writing today. Tickets are $35. (Tickets are also available at the door; but hurry to register, as ticket numbers are limited.)

The event takes place at the New York Society Library, 53 East 79th Street, at 6:30 p.m. and is open to the public.
