PEN American Center presents Wole Soyinka, LIVE from the NYPL, May 1st, 2011.
ARTHUR MILLER LECTURE: WOLE SOYINKA
Winner of Nobel Prize in Literature, Nigerian poet-dramatist Wole Soyinka writes, "Books and all forms of writing are terror to those who wish to suppress the truth." The lecture is a thoughtful examination of censorship--and a writer's purpose and responsibility in a climate of forced silences and intolerance.
