PEN World Voices Festival presents Unlived Lives 

Friday, April 20, 2018 at 7:00PM
Dixon Place
161A Chrystie Street
New York, NY 10002

Reading is often considered a means of escapism, but writing itself can also provide a form of expression to reflect upon the lives not lived. Writers Georgi Gospodinov from Bulgaria, Petra Hulova from the Czech Republic, and Hwang Sok-yong from South Korea share their experiences living under oppressive regimes, amidst civil war, and in the aftermath of communism. 

Petra Hůlová’s novels, plays, and screenplays have won numerous awards, and she is a regular commentator on current events and gender issues for the Czech press. Her eight novels and three plays have been translated into twelve languages.
