KANEKO Passages Series with Jennifer Egan
The KANEKO Passages Program, in partnership with PEN America, is thrilled to present a conversation and exploration on the intersection of literature and human rights alongside PEN America president and Pulitzer Prize-winning author Jennifer Egan. To kick-off the discussion, Egan will present on the mission of PEN America: “uniting writers and their allies to celebrate creative expression and defending the liberties that make it possible.”
This program is part of a two-day event with Jennifer Egan, co-presented by The University of Nebraska at Omaha, Omaha Public Library, and KANEKO press. The KANEKO Passages Program is KANEKO’s newest Core Literary Program, a collaboration between KANEKO and the UNO College of Communication, Fine Arts and Media and the College of Arts & Sciences.
Both events are free and open to the public. A light lunch will be provided. Registration is required.
