The PEN/Faulkner Foundation brings together writers and readers to promote a love of literature. With Maryland Humanities Council grant-support, their Writers in Schools program has expanded into Baltimore City Public and Public Charter Schools, offering a deeply personal reading experience for students.

Emma Snyder, Pen Faulkner's Director, reflects on the immeasurable benefits of direct connection with both a story and its author.
