RELEASE EVENT: RED ROSA
A Graphic Biography of Rosa Luxemburg – November 5 – Brooklyn, NY
Rosa Luxemburg is one of the foremost political thinkers of the 20th century. Her philosophy of socialism and democracy was present in every aspect of her life—her work as an economist and educator, her activism against war and socioeconomic injustice, her relationships with friends and lovers.
Red Rosa, a new graphic novel by Kate Evans, published by Verso Books in collaboration with the RLS–NYC, opens up Luxemburg’s intellectual world to a new audience, grounding her ideas in the realities of an inspirational and deeply affecting biography.
Join us at Verso Books on Thursday night, November 5, to celebrate the release of Red Rosa with a special event featuring Kate Evans and New York-based artist and writer Molly Crabapple. Evans will open the event with a presentation about the process of creating this graphic novel. She will then be joined by Crabapple for a dialogue about what it means to be a political feminist graphic artist in this day and age.
Please RSVP here.
The event will be followed by a reception with drinks and light snacks.
