Brooklyn Book Festival: 9/18
Quick reminder! This weekend, I'll be attending the Brooklyn Book Festival in downtown Brooklyn, on Sunday, September 18.
I'll be participating in two events:
11:00 A.M. Comics Quick-Draw!
Three comic artists face off in this fast-paced contest. Drawing (literally!) from audience suggestions, NYT best-selling and ALA-notable book author/illustrator Raina Telgemeier (Smile), best-selling author/illustrator Dave Roman (Astronaut Academy), and rising star author/illustrator Laura Lee Gulledge (Page by Paige) will battle with pen and pad. And, everybody wins: finished art will be gifted to some of the lucky young people in attendance! Moderated by Calvin Reid, editor of Publishers Weekly Comics World. Location: YOUTH STOOP.
3:00 P.M. Turn-Your-Life-Into-A-Comic Workshop
This is an event aimed at kids. I haven't been able to confirm a location, so check the schedule when you arrive on Sunday! Come make comics with me!
Book signings will immediately follow each of my events.
