The Parisian satirical magazine that was a target of a terrorist attack in January, will be honoured at this spring’s PEN American Center gala. The literary and human rights organization announced Wednesday morning that Charlie Hebdo will receive the PEN/Toni and James C. Goodale Freedom of Expression Courage Award. Jean-Baptiste Thoret, a film critic who arrived at the Hebdo offices after eight of his colleagues had been killed, will accept the award on behalf of the magazine.
