This year’s event will include a tribute to James H. Ottaway, Jr., our founding chair, for his leadership during the formative years of Words without Borders. Leon Botstein, noted conductor and President of Bard College, will introduce Mr. Ottaway. We will also celebrate the literature and culture of China, with a short reading of contemporary Chinese writing by Wenguang Huang, author of the memoir The Little Red Guard (Riverhead 2012), of contemporary Chinese writing.
