PEN World Voices Kicks Off Tonight

Just a quick reminder that PEN World Voices starts its six-day festivities tonight with, among other events, Mia Farrow and Bernard-Henri Lévy talking about the situation in Darfur at the prompting of Los Angeles Times Book Prize-winning novelist Dinaw Mengestu. There’s also a suite of short films inspired by writers like Sylvia Plath, Paul Bowles, and Gertrude Stein, with a live appearance by John Giorno, the subject of the documentary Nine Poems in Basilicata. GalleyCat‘s occasional remote correspondent, Amanda ReCupido, will be attending several of this week’s events, and I’m looking forward to her coverage!
