About PEN World Voices Festival

More than 150 writers from 30 countries in venues from Lower Manhattan and Harlem to The Bronx, Queens, and Brooklyn

Meet the creative voices shaping Mexico’s literary culture, and rethink the stories of migration, the border and national identity through the illuminating lens offered by writers and artists. In addition to the Mexico-themed programming, the festival offers a globally inspired array of conversations, readings, performances, and workshops, featuring rare New York appearances by leading and emerging authors from around the globe. Let the power of literature change you!
