Book Launch + Remembrance for Francesca Rosa
November 5, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Francesca Rosa’s passing in October 2016 brought to an untimely end the career
of one of the more remarkable and overtly political authors associated with the New Narrative movement in San Francisco. This book presents selections from the three titles published by Ithuriel’s Spear Press from 2005 to 2015 under her pen name, F.S. Rosa. It begins with an appreciatory essay by Hilton Obenzinger and ends with a lengthy biographical interview conducted by Bay Area literary critic and author Robin Tremblay-McGaw.
F. S. Rosa was co-publisher of Ithuriel’s Spear Press. This book includes selections from Lunchtime at the Muqata’a, The Divine Comedy of Carlo Tresca, and from her collection of short stories Post War and Other Stories. Francesca was a rank and file union member and a long time student of labor and history of the Left in America. She lived, loved and worked in San Francisco. Please join us as we gather to read from her writings and celebrate her life.
