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/ <http://www.versobooks.com/books/2036-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.

The new graphic novel /Red Rosa/, as well as a new translation of the
/Complete Works of Rosa Luxemburg: Volume II/—also published by Verso
with support from RLS–NYC—will be available for sale.

*Red Rosa: A Graphic Biography of Rosa Luxemburg*
Thursday, November 5, 7:00pm-9:00pm
Verso Books, 20 Jay Street, Suite 1010, Brooklyn, NY
The event is free with registration. Please RSVP here
