PEN/Faulkner Award Winner Karen Joy Fowler Participates in Student Reader Day

As part of Karen Joy Fowler's visit to Nashville for the citywide events and discussion of her book, We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves, Maplewood High School hosted her for a Student Reader Day event. Students asked about the influence of post-modernism, language, and memory in her writing. Later that same day Fowler was announced as the winner of the 2014 PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction. The PEN/Faulkner Foundation supports the art of writing and encourages readers of all ages.

Humanities Tennessee provided a free copy of Fowler's book to the nearly 200 students participating in this event.
