John Irving Kicks Off The Denver Post Pen & Podium Series

Award Winning Author Welcomed by Sold-Out Crowd 
On Monday, September 26, the crowd of loyal Pen & Podium subscribers and guests were introduced to John Irving, a self proclaimed “worst case scenario” type of writer. He said “you think that was bad, just wait!” Mr. Irving was genuine, funny, and honest about his writing process and his life story. Prior to the conversation moderated by Jeffrey Neuman, award winning playwrite and Pen & Podium Book Club host, Mr. Irving enjoyed meeting with subscribers and guests of Pen & Podium sponsor, Northwestern Mutual at a VIP Reception on stage. He also spent time getting to know our nonprofit grantee for the evening, Colorado Humanities. It was a great beginning to an exciting Pen & Podium season. Irving will be followed by world renowned authors: Lauren Groff, Anthony Doerr, Mary Karr, and Julia Alvarez.
Proceeds benefit The Denver Post Community Foundation. For more information on Pen & Podium, click here.
