Join Left Bank Books Collective and Yumi Sakugawa for a reading and signing of her new book – I THINK I AM IN FRIEND-LOVE WITH YOU
Based on the viral web comic of the same name, I THINK I AM IN FRIEND-LOVE WITH YOU is a purely platonic(?) love letter to the super-awesome bond you share with someone you definitely want to hang out with and swap favorite books with, but definitely do not(?) want to swap saliva or hold hands with.
A book reading and presentation by the author will be followed by a signing.
Free and open to the public!

Cartoonist Gene Luen Yang appears at the San Francisco Main Library on Saturday February 1, 2014 from 2:00 till 3:30 pm!
Two-time National Book Award finalist Gene Luen Yang discusses his New York Times best-selling graphic novel diptych about China’s Boxer Rebellion, Boxers & Saints, which the Times calls “remarkable.” This groundbreaking story explores the Boxer Rebellion from both sides simultaneously — which was right? He will discuss the conflict inherent in writing such a multifaceted story.
Graphic novelist Gene Luen Yang began drawing comic books in the fifth grade. He was already an established figure in the indie comics scene when he published his first book with First Second, American Born Chinese. This book’s critical and commercial success, along with its status as a National Book Award finalist and winner of the Printz Award, catapulted Yang into stardom as a major voice of our times.
A book sale and signing follows this event.
