A Reading in Solidarity with the Belarusian People
6:00 pm – 7:00 pm EST/GMT-5
On August 9, 2020, Belarus erupted in protest following the results of a fraudulent presidential election. Among those facing intimidation from Belarusian authorities is Svetlana Alexievich, Nobel Prize-winning author and president of PEN Belarus, who is a part of opposition leader Sviatlana Tsikhanouskaya’s Coordinating Council.
In collaboration with PEN America and City of Asylum, join us on Friday, October 16 from 6-7PM EDT for a reading of contemporary Belarusian literature by PEN America members and friends, including Masha Gessen, Ayad Akhtar, Jennifer Egan, and Valzhyna Mort. Register here
