Don’t see your city on this list and still want a signed book? My local indie bookstore, The Astoria Bookshop, will ship one to your door!

Hello, Bay Area!

Hi, again. I’m glad to hear so many people like the cover of Drama, and are looking forward to reading it! I’m looking forward to hearing what you all think. A few people have mentioned that it’s not yet listed on sites like Amazon and Goodreads…when those sites update, I’ll be sure to post the links here on my blog.

I’m traveling to the San Francisco Bay Area soon, and I’d love to see people at my events there! I figured I’d make a big ol’ post about where I’ll be and when.

My first stop is the Charles M. Schulz Museum, in Santa Rosa, where I’ll be a Cartoonist-in-Residence! If you can make it up to the North Bay, this should be great.

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 11

SOLD OUT!! Master Class for Young Adults
10am–12noon

Join Raina Telgemeier, creator of Smile, and Dave Roman, creator of Astronaut Academy, to explore the art of making comics and writing stories. Participants will learn about thumbnails, layouts, balloon placement, panel variation, and the mechanics of sequential art, and will have a chance to create their own 4–8 page short comic. Recommended for aspiring cartoonists ages 10 and up. Cost: $35 for members; $40 for non-members.
Advance reservations required: (707) 284-1263.

Second Saturday Cartoonists
1–3pm
As part of the Cartoonist-in-Residence program, visitors can meet, watch and talk to cartoonists Raina Telgemeier and Dave Roman. The meet and greet is free with Museum admission and open to the public, and advance reservations are not required.

I’ll also be speaking at schools and libraries in Oakland, San Francisco, Pleasanton, Alameda, and Berkeley, but those are all private visits, so they’re not on my official calendar of events. I tried to spread my appearances out so that no matter what part of the Bay Area you live in, something will be convenient! I hope to see you while I’m in town!
