Hill Center Reading Series

The Hill Center & PEN/Faulkner Literary Reading Series:

For years, the PEN/Faulkner Foundation has hosted an acclaimed reading series featuring nationally known authors at the Folger Shakespeare Library. With the launch of Hill Center/PEN/Faulkner Literary Reading Series last December, PEN/Faulkner expands and diversifies its literary programming by featuring established and emerging local authors at Hill Center.

Hill Center serves as a vibrant home for culture, education, and city life on Capitol Hill. Located at the rehabilitated Old Naval Hospital, the historic Civil War-era facility features an array of beautiful, light-filled rooms that retain historic detail with modern amenities, including high-tech audiovisual capabilities, accessibility, and environmentally-friendly construction.

All Hill Center Reading Series events take place at:

Hill Center
