Our PEN New England panel with music critic and novelist Bill Flanagan, poet and lyricist Paul Muldoon, and singer, songwriter and musician Paul Simon is available for viewing here. Great talk about writing and music, with a couple of poems from Muldoon and two Paul Simon performances, including a song from his new album not yet released. At the end of the evening I was proud to announce our new PEN New England Award for Lyrics of Literary Excellence, an annual prize which which will be presented for the first time at next year’s panel.
