About this event

What does it takes to leave everything behind and start anew, embracing literature, and forging one's own way in life? What does it cost to free oneself from familial, social and professional expectations? What is left today of New York City’s underground culture? These are some of the questions that French novelist and Villa Albertine resident Constance Debré and legend of American literature Eileen Myles will debate on October 3, at 6pm, as we celebrate the concomitant release of Love me Tender (Semiotext(e), trans by H. James), Debré’s debut novel in the US, and the first publication in France of Myles’s mythic novel Chelsea Girls (éditions du sous-sol, trans by Héloise Esquié).

The conversation will be moderated by Stephanie LaCava, it will take place at the bookstore, and will be in English. This event  is free with RSVP.

THIS IS AN OFFICIAL 2022 BROOKLYN BOOK FESTIVAL BOOKEND EVENT
