CA – Second Saturday Cartoonists
Raina Telgemeier and Dave Roman appear at the Charles M. Schulz Museum on Saturday, February 11th, 2012 from 11:00AM – 2:00PM.
Having survived an awkward youth, plagued by unfriendly friends, boy confusion, a major earthquake and dental drama, Raina Telgemeier chronicles the trials and tribulations of being a middle schooler in her graphic novel memoir, “Smile.” Telgemeier, whose graphic novel recently won the Eisner Award for Best Publication for a Teen Audience, will speak and teach at the Charles M. Schulz Museum and Research Center on Saturday, February 11. From 10:00 am -12:00 pm, she will teach a master class for young adults (aged 10 and up) and at 1:00 pm she and cartoonist Dave Roman will speak and sign books with Museum visitors.
Telgemeier’s Master Class for Young Adults will explore the art of making comics and story writing. 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. This class is recommended for aspiring cartoonists ages 10 and up. Advanced reservations are required, please call (707) 284-1263 to reserve a space.
At 1:00 pm Telgemeier will give a formal presentation and a live, interactive reading from Smile. Afterward, Telgemeier and Dave Roman, creator of “Astronaut Academy: Zero Gravity” and co-author of two New York Times bestselling graphic novels, “X-Men: Misfits” and “The Last Airbender: Zuko’s Story,” will meet and sign books of Museum visitors. The price of the presentation and meet and greet is included in the price of Museum admission.
