The 2006 PEN World Voices Festival
of International Literature
April 26-30, 2006
New York City
Welcome to the debut of PEN World Voices: the New York Festival of International Literature, a confluence of remarkable writers from more than 45 countries who will come together for seven days of discussions, tributes, readings, and conversations that will expand the literary horizons of American audiences.
As Arthur Miller said at a PEN gathering of world authors almost 40 years ago, â€œNone of us comes here as the representative of a country.â€? PEN World Voices hopes to open a global conversation in which the shared human concerns that are central to literature take precedence over issues of ideology or nationality.
With Chris Abani, Boris Akunin, Sherman Alexie, Roberto Calasso, Hans Magnus Enzensberger, Nadine Gordimer, David Grossman, Moses Isegawa, Elias Khoury, Henning Mankell, Helen Oyeyemi, Anna Politkovskaya, Asne Seierstad, Colm TÃ³ibÃn, and many more.
