PEN/Faulkner Awards

Ron Carlson, Jennifer Egan, Colin Harrison, Jim Lehrer, Colum McCann, Azar Nafisi, Joyce Carol Oates, ZZ Packer, Grace Paley, Ann Patchett, Caryl Phillips, Porter Shreve, Monique Truong and Daniel Wallace lent their imagination to the theme “Beginnings” at a gala benefit evening of readings to celebrate PEN/ Faulkner’s 25th anniversary at the Folger Shakespeare Library on September 27. Evoked from Eudora Welty’s “One Writer’s Beginnings,” this year’s theme revealed that beginnings can come about at any stage in life. Roger Mudd served as Master of Ceremonies at the performance, which was followed by a black-tie dinner in the Great Hall. Proceeds from the evening go to fund the PEN/Faulkner Foundation’s outreach programs, the Writers in Schools program and the PEN/Faulkner Awards.
