We Are the Birds of the Coming Storm, with Lola Lafon

Co-presented by the Cultural Services of the Consulate General of France, San Francisco

Litquake welcomes author and musician Lola Lafon, who was raised in the equally diverse cities of Bucharest, Sofia, and Paris. Her books have been nominated for several literary awards, and tackle themes as diverse as capitalism, antifascism, utopia, and feminism.

This year marks the English translation of her novel We Are the Birds of the Coming Storm, an insurrectionary and feminist tale set in in modern-day Paris but inspired by the 19th century Chicago Haymarket events. She frequently performs musical concert readings of her works while on tour, and tonight will be no exception. Hosted wine bar.
