Discount to PEN World Voices Festival Available for Promotion to Indie Customers

The Ninth Annual PEN World Voices Festival of International Literature will take place April 29 – May 5, in New York City. Through a partnership with the American Booksellers Association, PEN is providing a promo code that will allow ABA bookstore members to offer their customers tickets at 20 percent off the regular price. In turn, PEN will be promoting IndieBound on its website and providing a link as a purchase option.

The PEN banner is available with a promotion code in the Bookseller DIY for stores to use on their websites and in newsletters.

At the PEN World Voices Festival, writers from all over the world will come together to explore bravery in art, politics, and personal life. Chaired by Salman Rushdie, this year’s festival examines writers’ impact on political transformations in recent global hot spots — Burma, Palestine, South Africa, Haiti, and Guantanamo Bay — and honors small acts of bravery displayed in daily life. The many events include panel discussions, one-on-one conversations, participatory workshops, and performances at venues throughout the city. PEN will feature several events in association with The Public Theater, a center for culture, arts, and ideas, and will partner with The Standard, High Line and The Standard, East Village, which will serve as festival hubs. Featured authors include Judith Butler, Eduardo Galeano, Joy Harjo, Aleksandar Hemon, Jamaica Kincaid, Ursula Krechel, Fran Lebowitz, Claudio Magris, Pierre Michon, Téa Obreht, Sapphire, Charles Simic, Naomi Wolf, and others.
