The Arthur Miller Freedom to Write Lecture: Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

Named for the former PEN president and fierce defender of the freedom of expression, the Arthur Miller Freedom to Write Lecture is a defining event of the PEN World Voices Festival. Nigerian-born novelist, 2013 winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award, and Festival co-curator Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie joins the luminaries who have commanded the podium, including Colm Tóibín, Justice Sonia Sotomayor, Orhan Pamuk, Umberto Eco, Nawal El Saadawi, Wole Soyinka, and Salman Rushdie. A conversation with writer and PEN President Andrew Solomon will follow.
