PEN: Writing Wrongs, Righting Wrongs
Where: High Line near 17th St., 10th Ave. Square, New York City (Rain location: Westbeth Center for the Arts)
Two sets of on-stage conversations between authors who integrate key themes of coming-of-age:
Missing Persons: Authors consider missing men, women, children, telling stories of individual lives—and of societies—gone awry.
Fend for Yourself: Authors explore the hard truths of coming of age, with stories of resilience, independent thinking, and self-knowledge.
With Lemon Andersen, Michele Carlo, Tayari Jones, Jacqueline Jones LaMon, Adrian Nicole LeBlanc, Rachel McKibbens, Tony Medina, Salman Rushdie, Kyung-sook Shin, and others
