Peter Kuper and Liniers appear at Harvard Book Store on Thursday October 22, 2015 at 8:00 PM!
Harvard Book Store welcomes graphic novelist and Harvard University visiting professor PETER KUPER and renowned Argentinian comics artist LINIERS for a presentation of their books Ruins and Macanudo #3.
Samantha and George are a couple heading towards a sabbatical year in the quaint Mexican town of Oaxaca. For Samantha, it is the opportunity to revisit her past. For George, it is an unsettling step into the unknown. For both of them, it will be a collision course with political and personal events that will alter their paths and the town of Oaxaca forever.
In tandem, the remarkable and arduous journey that a Monarch butterfly endures on its annual migration from Canada to Mexico is woven into Ruins. This creates a parallel picture of the challenges of survival in our ever-changing world.
Ruins explores the shadows and light of Mexico through its past and present as encountered by an array of characters. The real and surreal intermingle to paint an unforgettable portrait of life south of the Rio Grande.
On Macanudo #3:
Macanudo #3 is the newest volume of Liniers’s daily comic strip, and the drawing and vision are more gorgeous than ever. Like volumes #1 and #2, this new collection is marked by existential wit, a playful sensibility, and a probing mind. Dive in for more Henrietta and her cat Fellini; more Mandlebaum, the teddy bear; more sensitive robot, and much else besides!
