Some PEN Literary Awards Winners

Today, the winners of some of the PEN Literary Awards were announced. 

The one that caught my attention is the PEN/Saul Bellow Award for Achievement in American Fiction ($25,000) to a distinguished living American author of fiction.  It will be given to Toni Morrison.

See for the winners that were announced.  The winners for the other PEN awards will not be announced until April 11. 

I’m particularly interested in the PEN/Robert W. Bingham Prize for Debut Fiction ($25,000) which is awarded to an author “whose debut work—published in 2015—represents distinguished literary achievement and suggests great promise.”  See my February 3 blog entry in which I gave some information about the shortlist for this prize.
