The Best of the PEN World Voices Festival

If you’re in New York City, cancel your Friday glo-stick party and call in sick to work: it’s the PEN Fest! If you’ve never been, this is essentially cocaine for booknerds. Great novelists, poets, and writers from all over the globe descend on Manhattan and Brooklyn for a staggering amount of events, panels, and, um, cabarets.

I’ve learned to skip the readings and opt for the “Conversation with…” panels. Several events are free to the public. Here’s a few events I’m looking forward to this week, with the caveat that some of them overlap in time:
