Salman Rushdie will visit Pratt Institute’s Brooklyn campus next month to pick up the Norman Mailer Center’s Annual Lifetime Achievement Prize.
Rushdie, who published “Two Years Eight Months and Twenty-Eight Nights” in September, will be the main attraction at the Dec. 10 “Pratt Presents” event, which will be free and open to the public. Presented by Pratt and the Norman Mailer Center, the award will be handed over to the 12-time author by Laurie Anderson in Memorial Hall.
Less-known writers, winners of the 2015 Norman Mailer High School’s Two-Year College, Four-Year College, College Poetry and Teacher Writing Awards will take to the stage to give their own readings. They were selected in partnership with the National Council of Teachers of English.
