Description

Apr 29, 2013 - May 5, 2013

PEN Festival 2013

at
Westbeth Center for the Arts 55 Bethune St, New York, NY 10014

For one week each spring, the PEN World Voices Festival showcases the work of more than 50 international writers from across the globe in conversations, readings, performances, demonstrating that literature is more than just pages bound in a book.

Chaired by Salman Rushdie, the theme of the 2013 World Voices Festival is Bravery and it will take place from Monday, April 29 through Sunday, May 5. It will feature such luminaries as Eduardo Galeano, Sapphire, Fran Lebowitz, along with writers from Palestine, Burma, and South Africa, to name just a few.

Czech author MICHAL AJVAZ:
A Literary Safari
Friday, May 03, 2013, 6:30pm
With Nadeem Aslam, Dror Burstein, Gillian Clarke, Margie Orford, Jordi Punti, Jaime Manrique, Randa Jarrar, Noemi Szecsi, Nick Holdstock, Tararith Kho, Natalio Hernandez Hernandez, Padma Venkatraman, Michal Ajvaz, Mia Couto, and others

Explorers may discover a bedside reading, a dinner-table discussion, or a poet in the elevator at this event, where each participant is given a map and left to roam the halls of the city’s oldest and largest artist community; the notoriously labyrinthine Westbeth Artists’ Housing. The residents will again open their homes to PEN authors and the public for this intimate annual event, which ends with a reception and champagne toast in the gallery.

Check-in begins at 6:30 p.m. Readings from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
