Rally for Silenced Chinese Writers

Wednesday, May 27, 2015, 6:00pm

With Murong Xuecun, Xiaolu Guo, Bao Pu, A.M. Homes, Francine Prose, Paul Auster, Jonathan Franzen, Ha Jin

Take a stand for Free Expression in China.

Join us for a literary protest on the steps of the New York Public Library (5th Ave and 42nd Street) as we stand in solidarity with silenced Chinese writers. Help us, as we demand an end to China’s repressive censorship laws and the release of the 40+ writers jailed by China for their work.

All are welcome and the event is free—RSVP below.

*Note that check-in for the protest will start at 5.30/45. We encourage you to arrive early to get a prime location on NYPL steps.
