Schedule for PEN World Voices

The schedule is now up for the PEN World Voices Festival of International Literature taking place in New York from April 27-May 3. The European writers appearing include Muriel Barbery, Lilian Faschinger, Clemens Meyer, and Péter Nádas.

The theme of the festival this year is "Evolution/Revolution":

2009 is a year of significant anniversaries—from Galileo’s telescope (1609) to Darwin’s On the Origin of Species (1859), from the Cuban Revolution (1959) to the collapse of Communism across Eastern Europe (1989) and Tiananmen Square (1989). For this year's festival, writers from all over the world will consider how the world changes and how we change.
