As an organization that's all about the literary community, PEN America knows that the current health crisis is hitting our Members and friends particularly hard. This limited-run podcast, "The PEN Pod," is meant to provide regular updates and conversations about literature and free expression, and provide an outlet for our in-person events that have been postponed or canceled. Join the conversation online at and on our social channels @PENAmerica. Thanks for tuning in.
