On March 20, 2012, over 100 individuals, organizations, bookstores, and PEN centers are participating in a worldwide reading organized by the International Literature Festival Berlin (ilb) to honor our imprisoned colleague, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Liu Xiaobo. In a show of solidarity, supporters will read Liu Xiaobo’s “You Wait for Me With Dust,” translated by Zheng Danyi, Shirley Lee, and Martin Alexander, and published by the Asia Literary Review.

This reading features PEN American Center’s outgoing president, Kwame Anthony Appiah and incoming president, Peter Godwin.
