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

    April 30, 2009

    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.
