Let's celebrate writers past and present on #NationalBookLoversDay!
To start, here's our #PEN100 reading list highlighting members of the organization who have produced some of the most influential works of the past century. https://pen.org/pen-america-at-100-a-reading-list/
🧵 In a must-read new column, @Sulliview highlights how PEN America, a defender of the #freedomtowrite around the world for 100 years, is now fighting book bans in the U.S. that have a previously unseen "intensity and scope."
