I’m happy to be working at the 5th annual PEN World Voices Festival of International Literature. If anyone is in the New York City area, please check out the schedule. A lot of the events are free, though some require reservations or paid tickets. I’m looking forward to the experience, and I think this is a major event that all people should take part in, to learn about what’s happening in the rest of the world and experience the diversity in thought and culture of our great globe.
