April 13 (Sat--4pm) Victor Serge’s Notebooks: 1936-1947.
Book release presentation with translator Mitch Abidor and Jacob Pittman.
In 1936, Victor Serge—poet, novelist, and revolutionary—left the Soviet Union for Paris, the rare opponent of Stalin to escape the Terror. In 1940, after the Nazis marched into Paris, Serge fled France for Mexico, where he would spend the rest of his life. His years in Mexico were marked by isolation, poverty, peril, and grief; his Notebooks, however, brim with resilience, curiosity, outrage, a passionate love of life, and superb writing. https://www.facebook.com/events/416234232282786/
