Golden Pen Award Winner


The Spokesman-Review is pleased to announce that Samuel Pettit of Spokane has won the monthly Golden Pen Award. Samuel’s cartoon of Dec. 14 commented on the debate over whether “To Kill a Mockingbird” is offensive.

The Golden Pen Award expresses the newspaper’s appreciation for letter-writers and artists who demonstrate exceptional eloquence and clarity in their contributions to our Roundtable page.

Monthly winners as well as the weekly nominees for this award are chosen by Opinion page staff members. Monthly winners receive a 10-karat-gold Cross pen.

We congratulate Samuel Pettit and thank all of the readers who care enough to debate public issues on this page.
