Winkler & PEN World Voices Festival

A Literary Quartet

With: Sjon, Siri Hustvedt, Geert Mak, Josef Winkler, moderated by John Freeman and Morgan Meis

Wednesday 30th April

7–8:30 pm

The Public Theater, 425 Lafayette Street, NYC

In the first of two speed-chess style interviews, writer-editors Morgan Meis and John Freeman speak with acclaimed Festival participants from across the globe.  Each writer — Iceland’s Sjon, Austria’s Josef Winkler, the Netherland’s Geert Mak, and the United States’ own Siri Hustvedt — is a master from his or her own country. Don’t miss the chance to hear these fine writers speak about topics including religion, art, and craft.
