Model Becka Diamond and stylist Keegan Singh got cozy at last night's intimate PEN Edmont Holiday benefit, where budding writers shared drinks and stories with luminaries such as Salman Rushdie, Sebastian Junger and Paul Auster.
The event, held at the Half King, was in benefit of the PEN American Center's literary arts enrichment for New York City public schools. The PEN Edmont is a new sub-committee of younger writers and supporters. Guests included Stephanie LaCava, Charlotte Kidd, Anna Wintour's assistant Clairborne Swanson, Siri Hustvedt, and singer Sophie Auster, who performed for the group.
