Eventbrite - Bay Area Book Festival | June 4 & 5, 2016

What is the germ that starts a story? Often, it is the lived experience of alienation. In this panel of stellar literary voices, all from abroad, you’ll get to explore that theme through diverse frames: Baume’s lyrical tale of a man and his dog in the Irish countryside, Lakhous’ farcical polyglot Italy, Young-Moon’s surreal San Francisco capers, and Sinisalo’s dystopian Finland, where the state is phasing out real women and our protagonist must hid her intellect…


Sponsored by Culture Ireland, the Italian Cultural Institute of San Francisco, LTI Korea, and Finlandia Foundation National
