Interstate with Julian Sayarer

Interstate by Julian Sayarer
Interstate by Julian Sayarer

Julian Sayarer, author, journalist, and ex-cycle courier decides to set out hitchhiking from New York to San Francisco. Revisiting this timeless American journey, he finds an unseen nation in rough shape.

Along the road are homeless people and anarchists who have dropped out of society altogether, and blue-collar Americans in forgotten towns and food deserts who seem to have lost all meaning. Helped along by roadside communities and encounters that somehow keep a sense of optimism alive, Interstate grapples with the fault lines in US society. It tells a tale of Steinbeck and Kerouac, set against the indifference of the vast US landscape and the frustrated energy of American culture and politics at the start of a new century.

This timely account of US roadside politics will be presented as a series of soundtracked readings as well as an audience Q&A.
