PEN: The Sixth Annual Arthur Miller Freedom to Write Lecture: Wole Soyinka

Where: New York Public Library, Celeste Bartos Forum, 5th Ave. at 42nd St., New York City

Winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature, Nigerian poet-dramatist, Wole Soyinka, writes: “Books and all forms of writing are terror to those who wish to suppress the truth.” Join him for a thoughtful examination of censorship—and a writer’s purpose and responsibility in a climate of forced silences and intolerance.
