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.


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.

CHARLES M. SCHULZ MUSEUM 2301 Hardies Lane Santa Rosa, CA 95403


The next day, I'll be in the East Bay! Come say hello, get signed copies of Smile and Astronaut Academy, and get to know a great independent local bookstore!

SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 12 Bookstore Event & Signing 11:30 AM Featuring Raina Telgemeier & Dave Roman! A GREAT GOOD PLACE FOR BOOKS 6120 LaSalle Avenue Oakland, CA


Later that week, join me for a very special event on the Peninsula!

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 17 GRAPHIC NOVEL NIGHT AT THE READING BUG! 5:00 PM Featuring kids' graphic novel creators Jenni Holm (Babymouse), Raina Telgemeier, and Dave Roman! Presentation, live drawing, and booksigning! THE READING BUG 785 Laurel St San Carlos, CA 94070


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!
