100 writers descend on New York for this parade, which kicks off the 8th Annual PEN World Voices Festival of International Literature. The Parade of Illuminations invites participants to capture pieces of text out of the air to represent the fleeting sense of literature in our technology-centric world. Visual elements for the procession are inspired by the physical sense of books and the history of print. The festival includes performances, discussions, one-on-one conversations and readings — all to highlight the power of the written word in action.
