British cartoonist Luke Pearson appears at the Strand Book Store on Tuesday May 6th from 7:00PM – 8:00PM!
Luke Pearson has gained wide acclaim for his striking illustrations and complex, multivalent comics. His Hildafolk series contains Luke’s signature blend of exuberant visuals and dark, whimsical stories. To celebrate the release of the latest Hildafolk book, Luke will chat about his work and sign copies of Hilda and The Black Hound for fans in our rare book room. This fourth book in the series chronicles the adventurous Hilda and her companion Twig (a blue fox with antlers) in their encounters with the Nisse, creatures who live in a mirror world “where the rules of physics don’t quite match up.”
Luke’s work has been praised as “glorious, exciting if also rather menacing” by the New York Times. Of the series, Slate has said “It’s hard to imagine a better all-ages comic.” Join us for an evening with an exciting talent in comics!
Buy a copy of Hilda and the Black Hound or a $15 Strand gift card in order to attend this event. All options admit one person.

Junot Diaz, author of The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao and most recently This Is How You Lose Her, appears at The Jean Cocteau for a reading and signing on Monday April 21st, 2014 at 7:00 pm!
A few Facts about his interviewers:Doctor Shanté Paradigm Smalls – A scholar and artist who works at the intersection of popular culture and critical theory. She is a professor at University of New Mexico in American Studies. Santiago Vaquera-Vásquez – An unrepentant border crosser, ex-dj, writer, painter, and academic. He is a professor at the University of New Mexico in the Department of Spanish and Portuguese.
$5 for patrons purchasing paperbacks and $10 for patrons without purchase of book
Díaz turns his remarkable talent to the haunting, impossible power of love – obsessive love, illicit love,
fading love, maternal love. In prose that is endlessly energetic, inventive, tender, and funny, the stories in
This Is How You Lose Her lay bare the infinite longing and inevitable weakness of the human heart.
They remind us that passion always triumphs over experience, and that “the half-life of love is forever.
