Marguerite Tonight!

Tonight in continuing programming for the PEN festival Marguerite Abouet will be appearing at the Instituto Cervantes New York at 211-215 East 49th St. from 6-7:30 p.m. with other contemporary African authors. To quote the PEN website: "Americans' exposure to Africa is mostly through press coverage focused on current events, with a bias toward the sensational and tragic. This discussion will offer a glimpse into the richness of the literary voices from Africa: these writers will talk about their work, the traditions they draw on, their styles and literary choices, and their tremendously diverse accomplishments."

Another worthwhile event co-sponsored by Words Without Borders, the online magazine for international literature--a partner in The Center for Literary Translation at Columbia University. The site is worth visiting by the comics enthusiast not only for an Aya preview but many other comics as well.
