Two participants in Friday's World Voices event launching the new issue of the journal -- Kathrin Röggla, who lives in Berlin, and Guillermo Fadanelli, from Mexico -- are unable to make it to New York and will miss this year's festival. Happily, some of our special guests will fill their proverbial shoes, among them Saïd Sayrafiezadeh, Paul LaFarge, and Patricia Spears Jones.
This also means that Kathrin will miss tomorrow's event with Yoshihiro Tatsumi, which I mentioned last week. Instead, I will interview Yoshihiro -- and it will still be great, so please come! Both this event and the journal launch are free and open to the public; details here and here, respectively.
