Milena Moser, one of Switzerland’s most well-known and beloved authors, is coming to Portland, Oregon. She has published 18 books to date, novels, short stories and memoirs. They were translated into nine European languages, and three of her novels were adapted for the screen. She wrote radio plays, numerous essays and a weekly column for eight years. She performed on the stage as part of a two-woman show called The Unfinished (Die Unvollendeten). Milena Moser will be reading from her book Fool's Journey, Or How I Chased After Happiness Just to Find It Waiting for Me, where she describes her travels through the United States in search of love. Milena Moser will also speak about her experience as an immigrant to the United States, as well as about her most recent novel, Country of the Sons (Land der Söhne). This family saga, which spans three generations, addresses the questions of growing up, freedom, gender, and identity. The event will be held in English, is free of charge, and open to everyone.
