PEN American Center Presents: Revisions of Truth            
When: Thursday, April 8
Where: Capitol Ballroom Hyatt Regency Denver, 4th Floor
What time: 3 p.m.
With Sapphire, Jackson Taylor, Marie Ponsot, and Phillip Lopate

Often, a work of revision surprises us with discovery and leads us to a deeper, more original vision of a truth than we had originally intended. So, while it is rarely possible to capture absolute truths, the revision process often allows us to home in on important aspects of a truth or, at least, to present a truth as fully and faithfully as we perceive it. This panel considers why truth, elusive and evolving as it is, continues to be worthwhile as a writer’s motive, aim, and endeavor.
