PEN World Voices and Guernica: A recap

Novelist Claire Messud (who was guest-editor at Guernica recently) led a panel discussion on women, diversity, and literature at the 6th annual PEN World Voices Festival of World Literature.  I’ll let another Guernica writer Lorraine Adams sum up the event.

Here’s a film of the event, which was held at WNYC’s Greene Space, in lower Manhattan.

Guernica’s second PEN World Voices event is tomorrow

It’s called “Leaving Home” and I’ll be introducing it.
Austrian Cultural Forum: 11 East 52nd St.

5:30–6:30 p.m.

With György Dragomán, Dinaw Mengestu, and Saša Stanišić; moderated by Irina Reyn

Free and open to the public; reservations required.

For reservations, call ACF at (212) 319-5300, ext. 222, or e-mail reservations@acfny.org


Guernica: A Magazine of Art and Politics hosts a panel with debut novelists Dinaw Mengestu, György Dragomán, and Saša Stanišić, whose narrators recount escaping violence in their home countries only to be fraught with feelings of ambivalence in their adopted countries. Moderated by Irina Reyn, whose debut novel, What Happened to Anna K., will be published in August 2008, the panel will explore children as witnesses, the status of exile, and the role of fiction as a voice for multiculturalism.
