Time Out says

This massive festival with more than 70 events throughout the city, brings together an all-star lineup of writers representing numerous countries to contemplate change, international politics and the value of free speech. This year's theme, Open Secrets, includes talks and panels that discuss the blurring line between private and public within literary, cultural, social and political verticals. Check out the discussions on movements like #MeToo, personal narratives about surviving hardships and a chat on something all undateable New Yorkers will be interested in: Love in the Time of Tinder with panelists Niviaq Korneliussen, Gabriela Wiener, Mary H.K. Choi and Isaac Fitzgerald. Booker Prize-Winning novelist and powerhouse Arundhati Roy delivers the annual "Arthur Miller Freedom to Write Lecture" on the festival's closing day, May 12.
