FIREFLIES LAUNCH: in conversation with translator Fionn Petch

  • Golden Hare Books 68 Saint Stephen Street Edinburgh, Scotland, EH3 5AQ United Kingdom (map)

How do we even begin to narrate the history of the world? Where do we start, and where do we end? Fireflies is Sagasti’s bold and original attempt to answer these questions. Taking an eclectic array of influences and personalities from modern history, he teases out events that at first glance seem random and insignificant and proceeds to weave them together masterfully, entertaining as he enlightens.

Join Scottish translator and philosopher, Fionn Petch, and Charco Press main editor and co-founder, Carolina Orloff, for an unmissable evening to talk about this very exciting novel. We will also be discussing Southerly, edited also by Fionn, and the upcoming titles of Charco for 2018.
