The Ninth Annual PEN World Voices Festival of International Literature, New York City, April 29–May 5, 2013. Writers from across the globe convene in New York City to explore bravery in art, politics and personal life. Chaired by Salman Rushdie, this year’s festival examines writers’ impact on political transformations in recent global hot spots—Burma, Palestine, South Africa, Haiti, and Guantanamo Bay—and honors small acts of bravery displayed in daily life.
