PEN New England will award writer and Paris Review co-founder Peter Matthiessen its 2013 Henry David Thoreau Prize for Literary Excellence in Nature Writing.

Peter Matthiessen is a three-time National Book Award-winning American novelist, nonfiction writer, and prominent environmental activist.

“In fiction, you have a rough idea what’s coming up next—sometimes you even make a little outline. In fact, you don’t know. Each day is a whole new—and for me, a very invigorating—experience.”

Free and open to the public.
