Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Tony Kushner has rescheduled his postponed appearance in the Twin Cities. He'll be at the Hopkins Center for the Arts next week as part of the Pen Pals Lecture Series.

Kushner, at right, is perhaps best known for his 1992 prize-winning play, "Angels in America: A Gay Fantasia on National Themes," but he also is the author of many other plays, several books and many essays.

He'll be on stage at 7:30 p.m. next Thursday for an interview with Steven Rosenstone of the University of Minnesota, and again at 11 a.m. Jan. 30, when he will be interviewed by Tad Simons of Minneapolis-St. Paul magazine.

The Pen Pal series is sponsored by the Library Foundation of Hennepin County, Comcast, and Minneapolis-St. Paul magazine.

The season's remaining speakers are Tim O'Brien, author of "The Things They Carried," and Richard Russo, author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel "Empire Falls."
