Hwang Sok-Yong at Defiance: The Spirit of ’89 in New York City

Hwang Sok-Yong at Defiance: The Spirit of ’89 in New York City

April 30, 2009 9:00pm

April 30, 9pm, Joe’s Pub, 425 Lafayette Street, New York City.

Participants: Eszter Babarczy, Jose Dalisay, Nick Flynn, Sergio Ramírez, Hwang Sok-yong, János Térey, and Paul Verhaeghen. Co-sponsored by the ACLU and Joe’s Pub.

June 5, 1989: an unidentified man faces down a column of tanks a day after
hundreds are massacred in Tiananmen Square. It is one of the most enduring images
from that spring of ferment and rebellion, and an iconic representation of a timeless
and universal gesture: individual, nonviolent resistance to tyrannical authority. Join
writers and artists from around the world for an evening of literature celebrating the
power of one person, one body, one imagination to stand against the state.

Tickets are $15, $10 to PEN/ACLU members. To purchase, check www.joespub.com or call 212.967.7555.
