Co-presented by BAM and St. Ann’s Warehouse
In conjunction with The End of Eddy and History of Violence
Moderated by Alexandra Schwartz

Édouard Louis comes to BAM to discuss the internationally bestselling books at the heart of this fall’s two adaptations: The End of Eddy, presented this season as part of Next Wave 2019, and History of Violence, presented at St. Ann’s Warehouse. This discussion looks to the ways in which Louis’ observations of classism, homophobia, and racism in French society—also addressed in his highly acclaimed nonfiction book, Who Killed My Father—makes the invisible visible and confronts readers and viewers with searing truths.

This event is part of Brooklyn Falls for France, a cultural season organized by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy and FACE Foundation in partnership with Brooklyn venues
