"I'm Gonna Open Sealed Door to Negative Zone!"
BY Robert Steibel Sep 30, 2013
Lethem's tenth novel is a sweeping look at American life and politics from the 1930s to today as experienced by Rose Zimmer of Sunnyside, Queens, and her daughter, Miriam. Both women are passionate activists, and Lethem tells both a national and a family story as Rose's communism gives way to the unorthodox movements of the 1960s.

The Name Garo: Shirato Sanpei and the Indo-Manga Connection
Produced by Kate Fitzsimons
In a More To Come interview special, Calvin speaks with Andrew Aydin, Rep. John Lewis's staffer and his coauthor on the graphic novel March Book One about the book as well as the historical impact of the 1957 comic Martin Luther King Jr. and the Montgomery Story about MLK, nonviolent disobedience and how that strategy and the comic spread around the world.
On Sept 27 2013, One More Page bookstore hosted Victoria Schwab (aka V.E. Schwab) "at a book signing for Vicious, a twisted tale of ambition, jealousy, betrayal and super-powers, set in a near-future world." I just finished the novel and enjoyed it.
Here's a recording of her reading and Q+A in which Ms. Schwab declares herself for Marvel over DC. Here's more photographs.
