Discuss with Zeina Abirached, author of A Game for Swallows @ NY Comics & Picture-story Symposium!

Zeina Abirached was born in Beirut, Lebanon. She studied graphic arts in Beirut and later in Paris, France. She has published 3 graphic novels: Beyrouth-Catharsis, 38, Rue Youssef Semaani and Mourir, Partir, Revenir - Le Jeu des Hirondelles. These were originally published in French, and have been translated into English, Dutch, Italian, and Spanish. Her mainly autobiographical works, illustrated in black and white, document her experiences during the Lebanese civil war in the 1980's.

About A Game for Swallows : In this beautiful graphic novel, Zeina Abirached tells the story of her childhood in Lebanon during the Civil War. One night, when the bombing was particularly intense, her parents, who had gone to visit her grandmother, do not come home. Neighbors come one by one to the tiny apartment to take care of Zeina and her brother. She draws sensitive and loving portraits of those around her, as seen through the eyes of a child.

You'll find here an interview with Zeina on her book A Game for Swallows, published in 2012 by Graphic Universe, and winner of our French Voices Grant: http://frenchculture.org/books/interviews/interview-zeina-abirached
