The 2011 PEN/Faulkner Foundation Gala


2011 PEN/Faulkner Foundation Gala

On Monday, September 26 at 6:30 PM, we’re proud to welcome a large and diverse number of respected authors to our annual benefit of readings, followed by a black tie dinner at the distinguished Folger Shakespeare Library. Each author will read work inspired by this year’s theme, “The Writing on the Wall.” Along with host Calvin Trillin, we’ve got a fantastic slate of readers for the evening, including:

  • David Remnick
  • Karen Russell
  • Andrew Sullivan
  • Amy Dickenson
  • Roxana Robinson
  • James McBride
  • Kyoko Mori
  • Al Young
  • Jeanne Houston

Tickets to the Gala are $500 a person, with all proceeds from the evening going to support the PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction and Writers in Schools.
