with Molly Crabapple, Michael Cunningham, Joshua Ferris, Nicole Krauss, Lili Taylor, and more

PEN American Center and the ACLU will present a public reading and conversation to mark the publication of Mohamedou Ould Slahi’s Guantánamo Diary. The first and only diary by a still-imprisoned Guantánamo detainee to be released publicly, Guantánamo Diary is an authoritative first-hand account of imprisonment, torture, and day-to-day human interactions in the world’s most infamous detention camp. For this unprecedented international publishing event, authors, artists and activists including Molly Crabapple, Michael Cunningham, Joshua Ferris, Nicole Krauss, Francine Prose, Douglas Rushkoff, Luc Sante, and Lili Taylor will join forces to read from the book. A conversation between Guantánamo Diary editor Larry Siems and Nancy Hollander, a lead attorney for Mohamedou Ould Slahi, will follow, moderated by Philip Gourevitch.
