Cartoonist Tillie Walden appears at Little Shop of Stories on Friday, September 22nd at 7:00 PM to sign her graphic novel Spinning from First Second Books.
Figure skating was Tillie Walden’s life. She woke before dawn for morning lessons, went straight to group practice after school, and spent weekends competing in glitter and tights. It was a central piece of her identity, her safe haven from the stress of school, bullies, and family. But as Tillie’s interests evolve, from her growing passion for art to a first love realized with a new girlfriend, she begins to question how the close-minded world of figure skating fits in. Poignant and captivating, this powerful graphic memoir captures what it’s like to come of age, come out, and come to terms with leaving behind everything you used to know.
This event is free and open to the public! Attendees must purchase a copy of the book from us to earn a place in the signing line.
