The PEN World Voices
Festival 2017:
Gender & Power

Empower yourself with
literature and ideas across borders.

http://worldvoices.pen.org

Founded in the aftermath of 9/11 by Salman Rushdie, Esther Allen, and Michael Roberts, the United States’ only international literature festival aims to broaden international dialogue and combat isolationism. We invite you to join more than 150 authors and artists from all over the world in this moment of unprecedented threats to freedom and truth—and of emboldened mobilization and resistance—and examine bigotry, misogyny, and xenophobia and to bolster the movement to counter them. Exploring the theme Gender and Power, these events will celebrate the transcendent power of art to enable people to see beyond their differences.
