A former president of PEN American Center, Rushdie was knighted in 2007 for services to literature.

Rushdie’s new memoir, Knife: Meditations After an Attempted Murder, is a gripping account of surviving an attempt on his life 30 years after the fatwa was ordered against him. In unforgettable detail, Rushdie is speaking out for the first time about the traumatic events of August 12, 2022. Join us on Vimeo for an intimate conversation as Rushdie and Jaouad discuss life, loss, love, the power of art, and finding the strength to keep going—and stand up again. The event will feature an audience Q&A and a closing note from PEN America.
