Stephen King

The award is meant for a critically acclaimed writer whose body of work “helps us understand and interpret the human condition,” according to a news release. Andrew Solomon, the president of PEN America, said Mr. King “has inspired us to stand up to sinister forces through his rich prose, his generous philanthropy and his outspoken defense of free expression.” (New York Times)
