Hefner Wins Literary Awards

Playboy boss HUGH HEFNER has been honoured for his literary work - he picked up two prizes at the PEN USA Awards on Wednesday night (17Nov10).
The publishing mogul took his girlfriend, Crystal, and his children, Marston and Cooper, along to the "special event" at Los Angeles' Beverly Hills Hotel, where he was handed the Award Of Honor and the First Amendment Award at the firm's 2010 literary competition.
Hefner took to his Twitter.com page to express his delight at the titles and posted a picture of himself onstage accepting one of the trophies.
In a series of posts during the evening, he explains, "I'm taking family to the PEN USA Literary Festival & Awards Dinner tonight... I'm receiving two awards from PEN USA tonight - the Award of Honor for my work as an editor & the First Amendment Award for fighting censors."
Novelist and screenwriter James Salter picked up the Lifetime Achievement Award at the gala.
