*Sunday, May 4
PEN WORLD VOICES: The New York Festival of International Literature
"Conversations in the Library"*


*Péter Esterházy* is one of the best-known contemporary Hungarian writers of
postwar literature. His novel, *Revised Edition*, was born from his shock to
discover that his father was an informer for the Hungarian secret police
during the Communist era. He will talk about family secrets with *Wayne
Koestenbaum*, author of poetry books including *Best Selling Jewish Porn
Films* and *The Milk of Inquiry* and nonfiction books including *Hotel
Theory* and *Andy Warhol.
South Court Auditorium*

*MICHAEL ONDAATJE & COLUM MCCANN: Adventures in the Skin
These two authors are often spoken of as "international mongrels" in that
their backgrounds and range of literary influences are cast extraordinarily
wide. "We get our voice from the voices of others," says *Colum McCann*,
"and *Michael Ondaatje* has long been a hero of mine." This chat promises to
be offbeat, informal, unrehearsed, and thrillingly passionate.
*Celeste Bartos Forum*

2:00 pm:

*Jeffrey Eugenides*'s novel, *Middlesex*, has been described as "a colossal
act of curiosity, of imagination, and of love" by *The New York Times Book
Review*. *Daniel Kehlmann*'s *Measuring the World* was hailed as "ravishing"
by the German paper *Der Spiegel*. They will talk about making fiction from
fact and much more.
*South Court Auditorium*

*Rian Malan, Lieve Joris, Alexandra Fuller, Francisco Goldman & Paul van
Zyl, moderator*
In countries riven by war and genocidal violence—from South Africa and
Zimbabwe, to the Congo, Rwanda and Guatemala—what, exactly, are the
possibilities for truth and reconciliation? And what are the pitfalls? Join
authors *Rian Malan* (*My Traitor's Heart*), *Lieve Joris* (*The Rebels'
Hour*), *Alexandra Fuller* (*Scribbling the Cat: Travels with an African
Soldier*), and *Francisco Goldman* (*The Art of Political Murder: Who Killed
the Bishop?*) for a far-ranging discussion. Moderated by *Paul van Zyl*,
Vice President and Program Director of the International Center for
Transitional Justice.
*Celeste Bartos Forum*

4:00 pm:

Best known for his novel, *The Reader*, *Bernhard Schlink*'s latest work, *
Homecoming*, continues to examine ideas of complicity and self-deception in
postwar Germany. *André Aciman* is a noted essayist and editor of *The
Proust Project*. His memoir, *Out of Egypt*, looked at several generations
of his Jewish family's roots in Alexandria, and his recent book, *Call Me By
Your Name*, is an erotic coming-of-age novel. These authors probe their
creative powers to weld secret memory and history into some of the most
evocative literature today.
*South Court Auditorium*

*Annie Proulx, Phillipe Grimbert, Yousef Al-Mohaimeed, Antonio Muñoz Molina,
Catherine Millet & Paul Holdengräber, moderator*

Authors *Annie Proulx, Phillipe Grimbert, Yousef Al-Mohaimeed, Antonio Muñoz
Molina*, and *Catherine Millet* discuss the books that have touched and
altered their lives, the books they continue to carry with them around the
world, and the feelings of true discovery and passion these works inspired.
*Paul Holdengräber*, director of the New York Public Library's Public
Programs, LIVE from the NYPL, leads the discussion.
*Celeste Bartos Forum*

*Tuesday, May 13*
Author *Philip Gourevitch* and filmmaker *Errol Morris*, two of our keenest
moral and political observers, have produced the first full reckoning of
what actually happened at Abu Ghraib prison, based on hundreds of hours of
exclusive interviews with the Americans involved.
*Celeste Bartos Forum*

*Friday, June 27*
*The Enchantress of Florence*
*Salman Rushdie*'s new novel is the story of a woman attempting to command
her own destiny in a man's world while bringing together two cities– the
hedonistic Mughal Empire and the sensual Renaissance Florence.
*Celeste Bartos Forum*

*Programs begin at 7 pm unless otherwise indicated*

Made possible with generous support from Celeste Bartos and the Margaret and
Herman Sokol Public Education Endowment Fund.

*STAY TUNED!* *WWW.NYPL.ORG/LIVE* <http://www.nypl.org/live>
