Praise for the PEN Literary Festival. This event has drawn writers from all over
the world and provides them with a platform to express their perspectives,
culturally and individually, to a receptive audience. As we continue to develop the global
community we recognize that our relations may only be established, developed
and sustained through understanding.
Events such as this provide the opportunity for the greatest number of
people to be exposed to the greatest diversity of perspectives for the
principle aim of understanding. There
are no greater ambassadors for any culture than the individuals who have
dedicated their lives to master their art of articulating the ideas and
experiences of their lives and communities.
This is truly a great event.
