Bauer Wins PEN New England Award

Literature faculty member Doug Bauer has won the 2014 PEN New England Award for nonfiction for his latest book, What Happens Next? Matters of Life and Death. Bauer’s poignant collection of essays weaves the stories of his own and his parents’ lives, the meals they ate, the work and rewards and regrets that defined them, and the inevitable betrayal by their bodies as they aged.
