Contemporary Fiction Reading Series with Politics & Prose (2015-16)

The Politics & Prose and PEN/Faulkner Contemporary Fiction Reading Series

PandPPolitics & Prose and the PEN/Faulkner Foundation are partnering to launch a Contemporary Fiction Reading Series in the District in fall 2015. The Reading Series will be hosted at Busboys and Poets locations throughout the city and will feature some of the most exciting names in American fiction.

The Fiction Reading Series is a testament to the strength and supportiveness of DC’s literary arts community. Close partnerships between Politics & Prose, Busboys and Poets and the PEN/Faulkner Foundation, allow these organizations to pool literary resources in new and innovative ways.

All events are free and open to the public, and they will be hosted at three Busboys and Poets locations, all of which newly feature a Politics & Prose bookshop and P&P events throughout the year: 14th & V, Brookland, and Takoma Park. There has never been easier access to exceptional fiction events for so many area residents.
