Cry, the Beloved Country

09 May 2019
7:00 pm-8:30 pm
Jerome L. Greene Performance Space at WNYC 44 Charlton St., New York, NY 10014

Across the world, writers have responded to growing economic inequality, social injustice, political oppression, and eroding freedoms with some of the most powerful messages of resistance, resilience, and hope. Join us for an evening of solidarity and hear moving accounts of where and how things have gone awry: with Ma Jian (China), Raúl Zurita (Chile), Marianna Kiyanovska (Ukraine), Ahmed Naji (Egypt), Christos Ikonomou (Greece), Kirill Medvedev (Russia), and Jennifer Clement (United States and Mexico). The evening will be presented in the authors’ original languages, with simultaneous written English translation.

Presented with the Jerome L. Greene Perforance Space at WNYC.

This event is part of the World Voices Festival My Story stream, supported by Amazon Literary Partnership.
