Sept 17: Frederik Peeters in Takoma

Busboys and Poets Takoma: Frederik Peeters - Aama: 4. You Will Be Glorious, My Daughter

Thursday, September 17, 2015 at 6:30 p.m.

Peeters, the Geneva-based graphic novelist, has won world-wide acclaim for Blue Pills and Pachyderme, and was awarded the Best Series Prize at Angoul'me for the first two volumes of his four-book Aama.  Set in the distant future, the series began with Verloc, his brother Conrad, and a cigar-smoking robotic monkey named Churchill. Rejecting the technology he feels destroys old values like humanity and beauty, Verloc, with his companions, travels across the galaxy in an attempt to recover the mysterious biorobotic experiment known as aama. As the quest continues on the planet Ona(ji), which aama has populated with biorobotic creatures, the expedition dwindles to a single man: can Verloc alone, himself radically transformed, regain control of aama? Peeters will be in conversation with Sam Marx, Exhibitor Coordinator at the Small Press Expo.
