Curated and moderated by the co-founders and editors of Monkey Business, Motoyuki Shibata and Ted Goossen, together with contributing editor Roland Kelts, this year’s featured writers are Hiromi Itō and Hiroko Oyamada in conversation with Brian Evenson and Jamaica Kincaid. The event will take place Wednesday, May 3 from 6:30–8:00 PM. For more information, visit the event page.

As part of the festival, A Public Space will have a table at the literary magazine and small press fair (PRESS FEST!) hosted by CLMP on Friday, May 5. A fantastic range of presses and magazines will be represented, including American Chordata, Archipelago Books, The Hudson Review and many others. The fair will take place from 4–8 PM at Washington Square Mews (between Fifth Avenue and University Place, just north of Washington Square Park) and will overlap with the kickoff of World Voices Festival Lit Crawl events starting at the Mews at 6 PM.
