1.The free-speech organization PEN American Center says it is giving its 2016 PEN/Allen award to author J.K. Rowling. The prize honors “a critically acclaimed author whose work embodies its mission to oppose repression in any form and to champion the best of humanity.”

2.In particular, the award recognizes Rowling’s two charitable foundations — Volant, which works to alleviate poverty and social deprivation, especially among women and children, and Lumos, which helps institutionalized children return to family life.

3.Rowling is a frequent target of censorship. In 2006, the American Library Association named her the most challenged author of the 21st century.
