The Guerrilla Lit Reading Series is pleased to announce that our reading scheduled for Wednesday, April 24th will feature Robert Perisic, Leah Umansky, and Dani Grammerstorf.

The reading will occur at Jimmy’s No. 43 at 7:30 PM. The event is FREE and open to the public.

In his home country of Croatia, Robert Perisic is a bestselling novelist, critic, journalist, and poet. He is oft-proclaimed as an essential voice of his generation, and his work came to prominence during the 1990s when he began writing with a clear anti-war sentiment. Perisic’s work has been translated into nine languages, and Our Man in Iraq is the first of Robert’s novels to be translated into English. The book, when first published in Croatia in 2008, spent eight weeks at the top of the nation’s best-seller list, and won several international awards. Perisic lives in Zagreb, Croatia.
