Brooklyn writer Isaac Fitzgerald has always had an affinity for tattoos. His first children’s book, How to Be a Pirate, celebrates body art through storytelling with the same fun and verve as his nonfiction for adults–and even his cookbook! A grandpa takes a little girl through the journey of each of his tattoos, and each adventure reminds readers of the power of believing in yourself. In addition to the reading and book signing, kids will have the chance to draw their own inspiring tattoos.

This event has been cancelled due to the coronavirus outbreak. Please stay tuned for updates about future PEN World Voices Festival programming.

The live events of the 2020 World Voices Festival have been canceled due to concerns about the safety of participants and audiences during the COVID-19 pandemic.

In early May, we launched the 2020 digital World Voices Festival at pen.org/worldvoicesdigital. This ongoing digital version of the Festival includes a suite of podcasts, videos, interviews, and musical playlists, with live events and other features to be rolled out over the coming weeks. We hope this digital content brings you joy during a time of uncertainty.
