PEN World Voices Festival: Arthur Miller Freedom to Write Lecture with Salman Rushdie
Sun, May 06, 2012, 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
In his first Arthur Miller Freedom to Write Lecture, novelist and PEN World Voices Festival founder Salman Rushdie will examine the many faces of censorship in contemporary society and the role of the author within a climate of forced silence and intolerance. The talk will be followed by a pop-Q&A—designed and administered by fiction luminary Gary Shteyngart—that requires Sir Rushdie to ad lib responses to whatever is brought to the table. Join us for what is sure to be a surprising event where nothing is taboo!
