In case you missed it before the holidays, PEN recently made the first event announcement for the 2008 World Voices Festival: Umberto Eco, Salman Rushdie, and Mario Vargas Llosa will converse at the 92nd Street Y on Friday, May 2, at 7:30 pm.
Here's the back-story:
On October 10, 1995, London’s Royal Festival Hall hosted a historic night of readings by three of the world’s most distinguished writers: Umberto Eco from Italy, British-Indian Salman Rushdie, and Mario Vargas Llosa of Peru. At dinner afterwards, Eco anointed the trio as The Three Musketeers.Advance tickets are already on sale.
By the way, PEN American Center is now on Facebook, and so is the World Voices Festival. So go check us out there as well.
