Pen out Loud: Salman Rusdie & Marlon James @ Cooper Union
Check out our other PEN Out Loud events with: Rion Amilcar Scott and Vinson Cunningham » Staceyann Chin » Lindy West and Hari Kondabolu » Salman Rushdie joins us this fall to celebrate the release of his newest novel, Quichotte. Quichotte is a dazzling, modern take on Don Quixote by a literary master, at once an homage and a unique work of art. Rushdie will be joined in conversation by Man Booker Prize-winning author Marlon James (Black Leopard, Red Wolf), to read from his work, and discuss his literary interpretation of a classic and the accompanying satirical commentary on our modern age of alternative facts. Presented in collaboration with Strand Book Store.
Venue: The Great Hall, The Cooper Union
