A Tribute to Robert Stone
- May 2, 2016
Join Tim O'Brien, Lauren Groff, Stephen Goodwin, and Madison Smartt Bell tonight at 7:30PM
The PEN/Faulkner Foundation honors the author Robert Stone, our longtime chair and founding board member, with a night of readings and reminiscences at the Folger Shakespeare Library. Stone was one of the most acclaimed novelists of the post-Vietnam War literary generation, receiving honors from the National Book Award and Pulitzer Prize to fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation and the National Endowment for the Humanities. His best-known works include Dog Soldiers, A Flag for Sunrise, and Damascus Gate.
PEN/Faulkner has assembled four authors to read from Stone’s work and speak about their literary and personal relationships with Robert Stone: Tim O’Brien, Lauren Groff, Stephen Goodwin, and Madison Smartt Bell.
This event is open to the public, with tickets on sale for $15.
At the Folger Shakespeare Library, 201 E. Capitol St., SE, Washington, DC. Click here for more info.
