As the second annual Carol Troxell Reader, Jarrett Krosoczka (Hey, Kiddo) gives a solo reading, sharing his personal story and artwork from his acclaimed new memoir (for mature teens and adult readers). Book sales and signing will follow. FREE to attend and open to the public.

Why should you attend?

Krosoczka’s graphic memoir, Hey, Kiddo, is currently a finalist for the National Book Award for Young People’s Literature. Hey, Kiddo is a profoundly important memoir about growing up in a family grappling with addiction, and finding the art that helps you survive.

“Honest, important, and timely.”—Kirkus Reviews, starred review of Hey, Kiddo

“Krosoczka’s TED Talk about becoming an artist has almost a million views. He is especially beloved by young readers (and cafeteria workers) for his hilarious Lunch Lady series… But Hey, Kiddo is a testament to the power of art and creativity—and a chain-smoking grandfather—to save your life.”—The New York Times Book Review
