The Pen and Pencil Club is America’s oldest daily operating press club. We serve working members of the press and the community that supports them. To do that, we serve drinks, host great events and bring people together.

Do you have a great idea for an Off-the-Record Session?

Let us know! We’re always looking for suggestions from members, so if you’ve got some ideas, please email Vice President Bobbi Booker with some names. If you can volunteer to help set the session up, even better!

Special Programs!

Don’t forget to check your emails for upcoming special programs like our Wine Series with P&P President Brad Wilson! If you haven’t already… sign up for ‘Notes’ the P&P newsletter to keep in touch.
