Every year PEN America sets aside an evening to celebrate and recognize excellence in writing from people in prison. This year’s program, “Break Out: Voices from the Inside,” commemorates the 1971 Attica Prison Uprising and PEN’s Prison Writing Program, which was founded in its aftermath and now reaches more than 20,000 incarcerated writers annually.

As part of PEN America’s national outreach initiative, PEN Across America, the Indiana Writers Center has invited local writers to read writing by people incarcerated in the Indiana prison system, and writing by winners of the PEN America Writing Contest on Monday, September 10 at 7:00 pm. The free reading will be held at Tube Factory. Please join us in honoring the struggle for free expression in prison and the importance of writing as an act of creative resistance and triumph.

Guest Readers include:
Debra, Des Vignes, Devon Ginn, Angela Jackson-Brown, J.L. Kato, Karen Kovacik, Michael McColly, Rachel Sahaidachny, Barbara Shoup, Celeste Williams
