The PEN Pinter Prize is awarded annually to a British writer of outstanding literary merit whose work encapsulates the principles of freedom and truth that Harold Pinter upheld throughout his writing career.
At the event, introduced by Melvyn Bragg, the 2012 prize will be presented to Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy, who will read a selection of her work, including several new poems. She will also announce the international writer of courage who shares the award. A limited edition booklet will be published by Faber and Faber and will be available to the audience.
