If you missed out on PEN Center USA's 24th Annual Literary Awards Festival held this past Tuesday, you missed quite the literary party. The star-studded event not only celebrated great literature and freedom of speech, but also went on to raise $42,000. The Los Angeles Times did a great write-up on the event. 

“The PEN Center USA literary awards, as always, honored excellent writing and celebrated heroes of free speech on Tuesday. And host Aisha Tyler exercised it with a high-energy, highly profane commentary that kicked the event's energy up a notch.”
