Brooklyn Allen (Lumberjanes), Ken Krimstein (The Three Escapes of Hannah Arendt), and James Sturm (Off Season) discuss their graphic novels and the power of the genre to tell important stories for all ages. Book sales and signing will follow. FREE to attend and open to the public.

Why should you attend?

“[Lumberjanes’] just-right blend of giggleworthy jokes, LGBTQ-positive characters, and affirmative emphasis on friendship… can make even the coldest, bleakest day feel like a sunny day at summer camp.”—Kirkus, starred review

“As Krimstein deftly weaves Arendt’s life and thought, he captures the excitement of the philosophical enterprise in both word and image… Both smart and entertaining; highly recommended and not just for graphic novels readers.”—Library Journal, starred review

“James Sturm’s graphic narratives are strongly grounded in American history, drawing upon this history to tell fictional stories with ongoing relevance.”―Los Angeles Review of Books
