Scottish Rite Center
On June 2nd, the Scottish Rite Masons, in collaboration with the PEN/Faulkner Foundation, proudly present Rachel Broudy, Richard McCann, Frazier O’Leary, George Pelecanos, and Morowa Yejidé with moderator Susan Eisenhower for an evening devoted to discussing PEN/Faulkner’s Writers in Schools Program and why engagement with literature is crucial to student success in school — and in life.
- Why is it important for students to meet authors, and how does the significance of a book change when a student meets the person who wrote it?
- How can meeting authors boost experiential learning in high schools, and what is the program’s impact on teachers?
A buffet supper will immediately follow the panel discussion.
This event is free, but seats are limited. Email [email protected] to reserve a ticket.
