PEN World Voices Festival of International Literature
Dates: Monday, April 25, 2016 to Sunday, May 1, 2016
The PEN World Voices Festival of International Literature animates New York City for a week each spring with a kaleidoscopic window into international literature and culture, inviting you to share ideas, find inspiration, and create dialogue and debate across cultural and national borders. Founded by Salman Rushdie in the aftermath of September 11, 2001, PEN World Voices is the only international literary festival in the world with a human rights focus.
It attracts the world’s best-known writers and has garnered broad global acclaim as one of the world’s premier literary events. Since its founding 12 years ago, PEN World Voices has presented more than 1,500 writers and artists from 110 countries, speaking 56 languages. —Copyright AALBC.com.
