Riad Sattouf will discuss his latest book, The Arab of the Future 2, at the Downtown Central Library with radio host Elvis Mitchell on September 29th. The best-selling cartoonist and filmmaker will share his highly anticipated continuation of The Arab of the Future, which is a recollection of his childhood as his family shuttled back and forth between France and the Middle East. 

Sattouf's latest graphic memoir travels to his father's hometown of Homs, where the young Sattouf attends schools and attempts to dedicate himself to becoming a true Syrian in the country of a dictator. Hear from one of today's most original voices as Sattouf acutely observes life's small daily moments while sweeping through issues of politics, religion, and poverty in a voice both darkly funny and piercingly direct. 

The event is organized by ALOUD, the Library Foundation of Los Angeles' celebrated literary series of conversations, readings and performances a the downtown Central Library.
