En tête-à-tête with Yvan Alagbé

January 28th, 2019

Yvan Alagbé browsed the shelves of our French Corner before the event for his new book, Yellow Negroes and Other Imaginary Creatures.

Yvan recommends reading—or re-reading, in his case—Gargantua by François Rabelais, and delighting into the unparalleled language, humor, and intelligence of this unique Renaissance humanist. Praising the pleasure of re-discovering great lit, Yvan picked up Traveling the Spaceways: Sun Ra, the Astro Black and Other Solar Myths by John Corbett—another unique character, whose visual work and music Yvan recently re-visited.
