Jason Low speaks to the New York PEN Group

Monday, April 20, 2009.

According to pen.org, PEN is an association of writers working to advance literature, defend free expression and foster international literary fellowship.  There are chapters all over the world and not long ago, we connected with author Fran Manushkin (on JOMB), regarding an event of the New York PEN group of which she is co-chair.  

A member of the group audio recorded the March 16, 2009 presentation by Jason Low of Lee and Low Books (on JOMB) and we are lucky to include excerpts of Mr. Low’s talk — anecdotes of the origins of Lee and Low, the amazing story behind some of their award winning books and insight into the term “multicultural”.

Thanks to Fran Manushkin, Paul O. Zelinsky, Susanna Reich, Betsy Bird and Lyn.

Be sure to listen to our interview with Lee and Low co-founder, Philip Lee (now retired).

This was a good night at PEN and I enjoyed speaking to the group about our books and the kinds of stories we publish. The PEN group is a highly intelligent, engaged group of people who are serious about their books and are open-minded to all kinds of subjects related to publishing and beyond. Thanks for posting this.
