You are not alone: 100 years of PEN International Part 1

From the ABC Radio National's Earshot: You are not alone: 100 years of PEN International Part 1

Writers go to prison for the courageous pursuit of their craft and PEN has been working to get them out.  Melbourne writer Arnold Zable tells the story of PEN International - from its creation out of the scars of World War 1 to bring societies together through their literature, to its growing human rights work across the globe, protecting freedom of speech and supporting imprisoned writers.

If you don’t know the truth you can’t act – Jennifer Clements - President of PEN International

Salil Tripadi - former chair of PEN International's writers in prison committee
