On Saturday 19 July PEN International, Centre Suisse romand, held its summer outing at the Casino Restaurant in Rolle. We spent a glorious afternoon reciting our own creations — poetry, short stories and essays. We were a small group, since lots of our members are already on vacation, but the quality of the performances made it more than worth while. I launched this tradition back in 2008 as PEN President and we are still going strong.
