According to pen.org, PEN is an association of writers working to advance literature, defend free expression and foster international literary fellowship. There are chapters all over the world and not long ago, we connected with author Fran Manushkin (on JOMB), regarding an event of the New York PEN group of which she is co-chair.
A member of the group audio recorded the March 16, 2009 presentation by Jason Low of Lee and Low Books (on JOMB) and we are lucky to include excerpts of Mr. Low’s talk — anecdotes of the origins of Lee and Low, the amazing story behind some of their award winning books and insight into the term “multicultural”.
Be sure to listen to our interview with Lee and Low co-founder, Philip Lee (now retired).
