The PEN World Voices Festival runs from April 27-May 3 in New York (mostly) and features authors from all over the world talking about books and ideas. And — surprise — there are several events featuring graphic novelists and the like, including an afternoon of three sessions. Several events are free, but you’ll need tickets for the GN afternoon. Here’s a rundown:
May 2, 2009 | Pictures + Words: The New Literature of Graphic Narrative With Kate Beaton, Robbi Behr, Emmanuel Guibert, Chad Parmenter, and Matthew Swanson (This event takes place in Chestertown, MD)
May 2, 2009 | 1,000 Words: The Power of Visual Storytelling May 2, 2009 | 1,000 Words: The Power of Visual Storytelling With Emmanuel Guibert, David Polonsky, and Shaun Tan; moderated by Jonathan Ames
Tatsumi and Tomine? We’re there!
For those who are fans of non-pictorial books, there are many other sessions of interest. Check out the entire schedule.
