PEN World Voices Festival

Web: https://worldvoices.pen.org/

The World Voices Festival, founded in 2004 by Salman Rushdie, Michael Roberts, and Esther Allen, is PEN America’s celebration of international literature and writers. Honoring our organization’s hundred-year history of uniting writers and readers to celebrate creative expression and the freedom to write for all, the Festival was founded in the wake of 9/11 to counter U.S. isolationism and broaden the channels of dialogue between the United States and the world.

The Festival is New York’s premier celebration of writing from the United States and around the world – a landmark event on the city’s cultural calendar.


New York City, NY


    The festival takes place from
    May 08 to May 11, 2024
