Episode 4: Freedom to Write? Our Obligation to Protect Expression

(Eric Lax, Joanne Leedom-Ackerman, Larry Siems) The AWP Conference Atlanta 2007 brings you Freedom to Write? Our Obligation to Protect Expression. Are writers being silenced around the world? Are our first amendment freedoms at risk here at home? How do current affairs affect the rights of writers to practice their craft? What is the role of self-censorship in a culture of real or imagined threats to freedom of expression? Join PEN America and PEN USA, the two United States centers of PEN for this discussion about the state of the Freedom to Write. International PEN has been defending the rights of writers around the world for eighty-five years. Moderator: Joanne Leedom-Ackerman.
