Bob Iger & Henry Louis Gates Jr. To Receive Pen America Honors; Live Gala Set For October In NYC
Exclusive: Outgoing Disney executive chairman Bob Iger and historian Henry Louis Gates Jr. are set to receive top honors from Pen America in person this fall at NYC’s American Museum of Natural History, perhaps.

Hoping for the coronavirus pandemic to continue to dampen domestically, Pen America planning to go non-virtual with its annual Literary Gala on October 5 in the Upper West Side locale’s Hall of Ocean Life.

The tableclothed fetting will come just weeks before Iger formally concludes his almost 15-years leading the House of Mouse to its dominate position in Hollywood. Currently chairman of Disney’s board of directors and having given up the CEO gig in early 2020, Iger’s designation as the bluntly named Corporate Honoree is based on “his career enlightening and entertaining billions at the helm of The Walt Disney Company, providing visionary leadership for one of the world’s most iconic companies,” says Pen America.
