The Bindery welcomes Sébastien Régnier and Barbara Browning for a reading and live music in celebration of their new book, Who the Hell is Imre Lodbrog?.. Please join us!
A very true love story, told in counterpoint, about friendship, politics and rock n roll.
In Barbara Browning’s eyes, Imre Lodbrog is the greatest aging French rock star you’ve never heard of, with the appeal of “Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan or Serge Gainsbourg on shrooms.” For Imre Lodbrog, music is an alter-ego experience―a late-in-life outlet for a mild-mannered screenwriter deeply shaped by the generation of May ‘68. Both ask the same questions: What revolution has wreaked more havoc and beauty than rock ‘n’ roll? And why do a certain few geniuses inside every revolution go silent and unrecognized?
— Sébastien Régnier is an award-winning screenwriter from France (Kabloonak, Martha Martha).
Barbara Browning has published three novels, including The Gift (or, Techniques of the Body) — a New York Times Editor's Choice — as well as I'm Trying to Reach You and The Correspondence Artist.
Sébastien and Barbara perform regularly as a musical duo.
Bar opens at 7, event begins at 7:30pm.
