Suisse Romand Centre information sheet

Typed information sheet titled Quelques renseignements sur la fédération internacionale des P.E.N. -clubs, ff. 2. The first two paragraphs in this document contain a summarised history of PEN International, mentioning that the organisation’s president at that time was Heinrich Böll, which suggests this was written between 1971 and 1973 – the years of Böll’s presidency. The third paragraph summarises the history of the Suisse Romand Centre, and ends by inviting national and foreign writers and editors living in the Romand regions to join their debates. This item is held in the PEN Archives at the Bibliothèque publique et universitaire de Neuchâtel (BPUN).
