Sept 18: Little Nemo at the Library of Congress

Little Nemo: Dream Another Dream

Josh O'Neill, Andrew Carl and Chris Stevens of Locust Moon Press tell the fascinating story of the creation of the 2015 Eisner Award winning volume, Little Nemo: Dream Another Dream. In 2014, Locust Moon Press started a Kickstarter campaign to fund the printing of the volume, a tribute to master cartoonist Winsor McCay. Many of the world's finest cartoonists celebrated his masterpiece, the comic strip Little Nemo in Slumberland, by creating 118 new Little Nemo strips, each in their own unique style. The resulting work, published on the same giant, broadsheet newspaper-sized canvas as McCay's creation, is both a stunning homage to McCay and a publishing work of art.

This is the fourth annual SPX festival program sponsored by the Serial & Government Publications Division.
