Teju Cole, who won the 2012 PEN/Hemingway Award for his novel “Open City,’’ got a hand when he was called up to the podium to accept the honor at the Hemingway Foundation/PEN Award ceremony at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library Sunday afternoon. Other writers who joined Cole on stage to be greeted by Ernest Hemingway’s son Patrick included PEN/Hemingway finalists Amy Waldman, author of “The Submission,’’ and Stephanie Powell Watts, author of “We Are Taking Only What We Need.’’ Yannick Murphy, Elizabeth Willis, and Mitch Zuckoff were also honored for winning 2012 Laurence L. & Thomas Winship/PEN New England Awards, which they earned, respectively, for fiction, poetry, and nonfiction. Massachusetts author Andre Dubus III, who was one of the PEN/Hemingway judges, gave the afternoon’s keynote address.
