Native Angeleno Ben Ehrenreich won the Journalism category for his Harper’s Magazine story “Drip, Jordan: Israel’s water war with Palestine.” We’re awfully proud of him, just as we are fellow FishbowlLA editor Matthew Fleischer, who was a finalist in the Journalism category.
Other Southern Californians to take home PEN awards include Suzanne Jill Levine of Santa Barbara for the Translation category, Hollywood talents Annie Mumolo & Kristen Wiig for the screenplay Bridesmaids, Alex Ganza, Howard Gordon, & Gideon Raff, who won the Teleplay category for the pilot episode of Homeland.
