The PEN World Voices Festival of International Literature celebrates world literature and free expression.
Join us from May 11–14, 2022 for cross-cultural exchanges ranging from lively debates that delve into the most pressing issues of our time to intimate conversations that awaken us to the beauty and power of literature. This engaging program of talks, panels, conversations, and performances promises programming that will challenge, inspire, and entertain.
The Festival will take place in New York City, and will also include satellite events in greater Los Angeles and in PEN America chapter cities.
