PEN World Voices Festival of International Literature
April 25–May 1
This annual celebration of international literature, now in its 12th year, will focus on recognized and emerging Mexican writers, thinkers and other insightful voices. This year’s theme is Renegotiating the Narratives, which offers an opportunity to examine and deconstruct the defining social, political, cultural and artistic issues affecting the Mexican diaspora. Along with readings, dance performances, art exhibits, talkbacks and lectures exploring Mexican identity and relevant topics—from the country’s expat artist community to US-Mexico border migration—the seven-day festival will include events that engage participants in critical discussions and illuminating, innovative forms of activism. More than 150 writers from Mexico and the global writing community—including Jamaica Kincaid, Carmen Boullosa, Colum McCann, Luiselli Valeria and Lydia Cacho—will take part in this timely event.
