PEN Literary Salon

  • The author and the audience

    The London Book Fair is about the book industry in its entirety—and that includes providing a platform for the discussion of more sensitive issues, such as censorship. PEN International is the body that campaigns for freedom of expression for writers everywhere.

    The PEN Literary Salon hosts events, author of the day interviews and literary debate throughout the Fair.
