TX – The Sculptor Signing

scm-sculptorPress Release:

Austin Books is excited to welcome back Scott McCloud, creator of the new First Second graphic novel, The Sculptor. Join us for a special Q&A on Sunday, February 8th from 2:00 to 6:00 pm. This is a not-to-be missed discussion with the man that showed us exactly why we love comics so much in Understanding Comics!

About Scott McCloud:
Scott McCloud has been making comics professionally since 1984. But even more than his series Zot! or his Superman stories, McCloud is best known as the comic industry’s theorist with his books Understanding Comics, Reinventing Comics, and Making Comics. He also created the concept of 24 Hour Comics Day and has talked about the medium around the world.

About The Sculptor:
David Smith is giving his life for his art – literally. Thanks to a deal with Death, the young sculptor gets his childhood wish: to sculpt anything he can imagine with his bare hands. But now that he only has 200 days to live, deciding what to create is harder than he thought, and discovering the love of his life at the eleventh hour isn’t making it any easier. This is a story of desire taken to the edge of reason and beyond; of the frantic, clumsy dance steps of young love; and a gorgeous portrait of the world’s greatest city. It’s also about the small, warm, human moment of everyday life. Scott McCloud wrote the book on how comics work, now he vaults into great fiction with a breathtaking new work.

Screenwriter, stand-up comedian, author, and director B.J. Novak is also known for his role as condescending “temp-turned-sleazeball” (Los Angeles Times) Ryan on The Office. He has appeared in several films, including Inglorious Basterds, Saving Mr. Banks, and The Amazing Spider-Man 2. His writing and performing have garnered several honors, including Emmy nominations and Screen Actors Guild and Writers Guild Awards. Of Novak and his new story collection, Gary Shteyngart says, “He just keeps kicking short fiction in the rear, making it run ahead clutching its ass, and then he runs up and kicks it some more, and the result is one of the most aggressively, insanely awesome debuts in a while.”

CA – No Land’s Man Signing

Mandvi

Aasif Mandvi appears in conversation with Reza Aslan on Wednesday, January 28, 2015 at 7:30 pm! Reserve free tickets at the link…

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

Presented as part of Book Soup at the Skirball, comedian Aasif Mandvi (The Daily Show with Jon Stewart) discusses his new memoir, No Land’s Man, with writer and scholar Reza Aslan.

If you’re an Indo-Muslim-British-American actor who has spent more time in bars than mosques over the past few decades, turns out it’s a little tough to explain who you are or where you are from. In No Land’s Man Mandvi explores this and other conundrums through humorous stories about his family, ambition, desire, and culture that range from dealing with his brunch-obsessed father to his high school career as a Michael Jackson impersonator to joining a Bible study group in order to seduce a nice Christian girl to improbably becoming America’s favorite Muslim/Indian/Arab/brown/doctor correspondent on The Daily Show.

Mandvi’s hilarious and passionate description of his journey will resonate with anyone who has had to navigate the murky space between lands. Or anyone who really loves brunch.

A book signing follows the program.
