Hello comics readers!
Just forwarding a note to all who may be interested. This coming Thursday noted graphic novel author/illustrator Nate Powell will be giving a solo presentation and discussion here at the Takoma Park Maryland Library (101 Philadelphia Ave, Takoma Park MD 20912) at 7:30 PM
(Actually somehow it has been advertised at both 7PM and 7:30 so he'll likely be there a little early, setting up and stalling for time a bit).
Nate's most recent book is The Silence of our Friends -- apropos of Black History month this memoir examines tensions and tentative friendships formed between two families in small town Texas during the struggle for Civil Rights. (See the attached press release).
Nate will talk about this book and his earlier works (Swallow Me Whole, et al) as well as his process in translating a story into a visual format. Should be interesting. Our patron and colleague Adam Waterreus from the Politics and Prose graphic novel discussion group will also attend and you should be able to buy books on-site.
If you think you'll come and want to register, it lets us know how many people we might expect, it isn't strictly necessary, but it helps:
Hope to see you there!
