About the PEN/Malamud Award:
The PEN/Malamud Award and Memorial Reading were established by Bernard Malamud’s family to honor excellence in the art of the short story. During his 37-year writing career, Bernard Malamud received the National Book Award twice, as well as the Pulitzer Prize and the Gold Medal for lifetime achievement from the National Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters. His published works include: The Natural, The Magic Barrel, The Fixer, and The Stories of Bernard Malamud. The basis of the PEN/Malamud Award fund was a gift from the Malamud family. The fund continues to grow through the generosity of friends, supporters, and Reading Series subscribers.
