Book Lists Including Animal Farm
These are works of fiction that I have found both entertaining and in some way informative or inspirational. There's an overall focus on speculative fiction, but I'm open to other genres.
These books make important statements about ecological wisdom, social justice, grassroots democracy, nonviolence, and related topics. While I don't agree with every viewpoint expressed in every one of these books, they all provide important information and inspiration that we can use in our aspiration to create change for the better.
More than 150 writers from 40 events will gather in New York City for PEN World Voices Festival of International Literature, April 28 – May 4, 2014.
For its 10th anniversary, the festival celebrates those who have dared to stand ‘on the edge,’ risking their careers, and sometimes their lives, to speak out for their art and beliefs. Join us for a wide range of events, including debates, one-on-one conversations, participatory workshops and performances in venues throughout the city. Use the code PEN14 (use PEN2014 for events at The Public Theater) and receive a 20 percent discount on most events. www.worldvoicesfestival.org
