MA – Romeo & Juliet Signing
Gareth Hinds signs at Porter Square Books on Saturday September 28th at 7:00 pm.
Join us for the book launch of Gareth Hinds’ latest graphic novel adaptation, Romeo and Juliet.
Gareth Hinds’s stylish graphic adaptation of the Bard’s romantic tragedy offers modern touches — including a diverse cast that underscores the story’s universality.
She’s a Capulet. He’s a Montague. But when Romeo and Juliet first meet, they don’t know they’re from rival families — and when they find out, they don’t care. Their love is honest and raw and all-consuming. But it’s also dangerous. How much will they have to sacrifice before they can be together? In a masterful adaptation faithful to Shakespeare’s original text, Gareth Hinds transports readers to the sun-washed streets and market squares of Shakespeare’s Verona, vividly bringing the classic play to life on the printed page.
Gareth Hinds is the acclaimed creator of the graphic novels The Odyssey, Beowulf, The Merchant of Venice, and King Lear. About Romeo and Juliet, he says, “The gold standard for romantic tragedy, this play features some of the most brilliant rhymed verse ever written. It was a joy to work with the text and spend time with these characters. And I had a great time drawing the sword fights!” Gareth Hinds lives in New York.
