Mark McDonald
Writers In Schools Program

The PEN/Faulkner Writers in Schools program brings resources both routine and unusual into D.C. classrooms. Copies of books for students to read are followed by a visit from the author who wrote the work. We talk with D.C.-based authors George Pelecanos and Dolen Perkins-Valdez about what keeps them going back to classrooms again and again.
