It's Writing Wednesday. PEN is an international writers organization. "A global literary community protecting free expression and celebrating literature," is how they put it. Their website gives an overviewhere. PEN's Children's/Young Adult Book Authors Committee gathershere. A conversation with picture book stars Brian Selznick and Paul O. Zelinsky ishere. There's a big festival of international literaturehere. There is also a newsletter, audio interviews, literary awards, and more. In other words, lots of stuff to entertain and educate writers about writing and issues of interest. Famous folks, too.
