I thought visitors to Ruminations…might enjoy some shots of the day at the
JFK Center PEN/Hemingway Awards:
Yes, that’s the back of Colm Toíbín’s head. He gave an endearing Keynote on Hemingway’s “unsaid.”
Cathy Chung (author of Forgotten Country) and I receive our awards. I couldn’t have shared honors with a more charming and fun character.
The Honorable Mentions take a Blurry Bow. For more on the why and wherefore of our bows, see Ruminations…03.21.13
A chat with Kevin Powers who took the gold with The Yellow Birds. A good and interesting fellow.
Proof that I was really there… then again, I suppose the plaque could be fake, just another Ruminations photobomb.
