Salman Rushdie and Marlon James In Conversation

The two met to read and discuss recent works as part of PEN America’s Pen Out Loud series. Salman Rushdie celebrates the release of his newest novel, QUICHOTTE, recently shortlisted for the Booker Prize. Quichotte is a dazzling, modern take on Don Quixote by a literary master, at once an homage and a unique work of art. Rushdie was joined in conversation by Man Booker Prize-winning author Marlon James (BLACK LEOPARD, RED WOLF), to read from his work, and discuss his literary interpretation of a classic. James sits on Before Columbus Foundation’s Board of Directors, and his novel A Brief History of Seven Killings received the American Book Award in 2015.
