The PEN/Faulkner Award Celebration

The PEN/Faulkner Award winner and finalists and the PEN/Faulkner Literary Champion are honored during an exquisite literary evening that features presentations by our PEN/Faulkner Award judges, original essays by the year’s five PEN/Faulkner Award finalists, and a star-studded list of notable guests.

Founding Friends

Run by board members Willee Lewis and Katherine Field Stephen, Founding Friends is a series of exclusive lunch-time gatherings that feature prominent writers. In the past, we have hosted writers as wide-ranging as Jean Case, Thomas L. Friedman, Marie Arana, Thomas Mallon, Dorothy Butler Gilliam, Jane Stanton Hitchcock, Molly McCloskey, and Eric Weiner.

Donors who contribute $400 or more are invited to attend our Founding Friends events. If you would like to become a Founding Friend member, you can join online or contact PEN/Faulkner at (202) 898-9063.

Our current virtual edition consists of intimate discussions with writers over Zoom.

The Salon Series

Gather with fellow literary aficionados in a exclusive group for a private hour spent engaged in rich conversation with authors such as Brit Bennett and Luis Alberto Urrea. In advance of each salon, we deliver a copy of each author’s book and a selection of sweet and savory treats to your home.

Your contribution allows us to serve students in the DC school system and to support the larger literary community with our programs.

To make sure you’re invited to these special events, join our mailing list.
