Congratulations to Brink Literacy Project

On Monday, January 28, 2019, The Denver Post Pen & Podium Literary Series was pleased to welcome Celeste Ng, award winning author of “Little Fires Everywhere” and “Everything I Never Told You.” She shared stories that were inspiring, honest and comical about her life, being a mom, and her writing process. Prior to Celeste’s on-stage conversation, and the Northwestern Mutual VIP Reception backstage, she joined The Denver Post Community Foundation in presenting a $5,000 grant to Brink Literacy Project, a nonprofit organization devoted to utilizing the power of storytelling to positively affect the lives of people on the brink.
