Description: English PEN hosts a special one-off evening to celebrate the centenary of Nelson Mandela�s birth. Esteemed guests from the worlds of literature, politics, journalism and activism will come together to perform readings of original letters written by Nelson Mandela during his time in prison, many of which have remained unpublished until now.
