Book Lists Including The Death and Life of Great American Cities
Although there are many books about New York, I will also list novels that are set in New York, biographies of many New York figures, and other books that may surprise you - as they may have me! - with their New York Connections. Check in, and stay tuned!
The Street Teach
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
