DC – Speak: The Graphic Novel Signing

Artist Emily Carroll appears at Politics and Prose on Tuesday, February 6, 2018 at 7:00 PM.

The novel, Speak, a National Book Award finalist, is now available in graphic form, illustrated by Emily Carroll. It is the story of a girl, Melinda, who becomes an outcast at Merryweather High after a traumatic summer experience. Though friendless and withdrawn into isolation, Melinda finds solace in art class. Through art, she is able to come to terms with what happened to her – and is able to find her voice. Compelling illustrations breathe new life into this resonant classic and its powerful message. This is part of the Can We Talk About This event series. (Ages 15+)

This event is in partnership with RAINN (Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network), the nation’s largest anti-sexual violence organization. Information about RAINN will be available and customers may choose to donate a portion of their purchases to RAINN the evening of the event.

This event is free to attend with no reservation required. Seating is available on a first come, first served basis.
