Saturday, May 9, 2015 – Selamatan and Launch for Love, Death and Revolution by Mochtar Lubis and The Red Bekisar by Ahmad Tohari rekindles the fire of the Indonesian Revolution.

Ardi Hermawan, the Indonesian Consul General in San Francisco, honored us by attending the event with his family and staff.

Love, Death and Revolution has been dedicated to the memory of Anwar Rawy, an esteemed elder in the Indonesian community who passed away last year. His family was presented with a copy of the book.

Virginia Shih, Librarian for the Southeast Asia Collections at UC Berkeley, was among Dalang’s staunch supporters and leaders of the Indonesian community.
