John Freeman & Daniel Galera

This is an event NOT TO BE MISSED!!!

John Freeman thinks of the ideal readers for his new literary anthology, Freeman’s, as “people who are curious, morally engaged, disturbed by the status quo, and who want a reliable guide for the best writers alive.”
Is this you?

This evening Chevalier’s is proud to host a talk, reading and signing with author and renowned critic John Freeman and Brazilian author Daniel Galera. They will be discussing John’s new literary biannual of new writing, Freeman’s, an anthology of fiction, nonfiction and poetry with each publication based on a theme. The theme of the inaugural publication is “Arrival” and features stories by literary greats including Haruki Murakami, Louise Erdrich, Etgar Keret, Daniel Galera, Lydia Davis, and David Mitchell as well as great ( but lesser known) authors Ghassan Zaqtan and Fatin Abbas.

Trust us – this is a spectacular anthology and this will be a remarkable event.
