Every year, The Center for Fiction, in NYC, present the Maxwell E. Perkins Award for distinguished achievement in the field of Fiction. The Center for Fiction is the only nonprofit in the U.S. solely dedicated to celebrating fiction. The Maxwell E. Perkins Award recognizes the work of an editor, publisher or agent, who has “discovered, nurtured, and championed writers of fiction in the United States.” This year’s award is being given to Nan Graham, who has worked with such authors as Stephen King, Don DeLillo and Annie Proulx.
Having such immense literary history within the walls of the Inn is thrilling and we are excited to be connected to the Center for Fiction in this way. We have donated a two night getaway package to help support the work of the center through their benefit auction being held tomorrow evening and hope to continue to support the center's ongoing efforts to support and inspire writers today--just as Max did with his writers.
