The NYPL advises that: “For free events, we generally overbook to ensure a full house. Priority will be given to those who have registered in advance, but registration does not guarantee admission.” This event is the second in a series of three, organized by the Authors Guild, the nation’s oldest and largest professional organization for writers.
