Celebrate the courage of four writers who have risked their lives in the pursuit of their creative work and learn about the grassroots movement that supports them in an evening of readings and conversation. 

Timed for Banned Books Week, DISSIDENCE is part of a three-city tour celebrating solidarity among City of Asylum programs in Ithaca, Pittsburgh, and Detroit. It will also mark Ithaca City of Asylum's 20th anniversary of protecting and supporting writers at risk.

“DISSIDENCE: Exiled Writers on Resistance and Risk” is organized by Ithaca City of Asylum and supported by a grant from Cornell University’s Migrations Global Grand Challenge and the Mellon Foundation’s Just Futures Initiative.

Admission is free but a donation is requested.
