DAGR Kafeneion: "Mobility," a talk with the author

Don’t miss DAGR’s  conversation with Lydia Kiesling, acclaimed author of “Golden State," on her latest novel “Mobility”!

A deeply serious, deeply political novel that is, quite often, fun to read ... Kiesling is not in the business of preaching to the already converted—she’s here to hold up a mirror to her readers, and to make anyone who cracks this book open squirm a little.
