GA – Why Art? Signing

Press Release:

Avid Bookshop presents local author and artist Eleanor Davis for her book WHY ART? This event will take place at our Prince Ave. location on Sunday, February 25, 2018 from 5:30 to 7:00 PM. It is free and open to the public.

ABOUT THE BOOK:
What is “Art”? It’s widely accepted that art serves an important function in society. But the concept falls under such an absurdly large umbrella and can manifest in so many different ways. Art can be self indulgent, goofy, serious, altruistic, evil, or expressive, or any number of other things. But how can it truly make lasting, positive change? 

In WHY ART?, acclaimed graphic novelist Eleanor Davis (HOW TO BE HAPPY) unpacks some of these concepts in ways both critical and positive, in an attempt to illuminate the highest possible potential an artwork might hope to achieve. A work of art unto itself, Davis leavens her exploration with a sense of humor and a thirst for challenging preconceptions of art worth of Magritte, instantly drawing the reader in as a willing accomplice in her quest.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Eleanor Davis is an American cartoonist and illustrator who creates comic works and other art for both adolescent and adult audiences.

In August 2014, Fantagraphics Books published Davis’ first collection of stories HOW TO BE HAPPY. SLATE described the collection as “a mix of evocative, geometric watercolors and fluid pen-and-ink cartoons, HOW TO BE HAPPY tells stories of sad people, lonely people, strong people, confident people, all trying to find a tiny bit of happiness in life.” Upon the publication of HOW TO BE HAPPY, comics critic Richard Bruton described Davis as “without question, a major young creator.”

Davis teaches comic book storytelling classes at the University of Georgia.

GA – The Magician’s Hat Signing

Malcolm Mitchell, wide receiver for the New England Patriots, appears at Barnes & Noble on Saturday March 10, 2018 at 1:00 PM to present and sign his new book THE MAGICIAN’S HAT!

ABOUT THE BOOK:
Super Bowl champion and literacy crusader Malcolm Mitchell presents the story of a magician who reveals an awe-inspiring treasure from his bag of tricks — books that make every kid’s dream come true!

This is not your typical afternoon at the library — a magician invites kids to reach into his hat to pull out whatever they find when they dig down deep. Soon — poof! — each child comes away with something better than they could’ve imagined — a book that helps them become whatever they want to be, and makes their dreams come true through pages and words, and the adventures that follow. But each child can’t help but wonder, What’s really making the magic happen?

ABOUT READ WITH MALCOLM:
Read with Malcolm is a youth literacy initiative founded by former University of Georgia wide-receiver and current New England Patriots rookie, Malcolm Mitchell. The organization’s goals are twofold: 1) to introduce book ownership to students in households where reading is not a priority and 2) to improve literacy in schools with below grade-level reading skills. In 2015, Read with Malcolm launched Share the Magic Foundation, a 501c3 nonprofit organization, to promote the long-term benefits of being an active reader to students served by Title I schools and underserved communities. To help us continue to inspire young readers, please visit www.readwithmalcolm.com for more information about Malcolm’s youth literacy programs.

GA – Spy Seal: The Corten-Steel Phoenix Signing

Rich Tommaso appears at Oxford Comics on Saturday, February 3rd from 2:00 – 6:00 PM to sign the first volume of SPY SEAL: THE CORTEN-STEEL PHOENIX from Image Comics.

Journey into the thrilling world of international espionage as one of Britain’s most covert MI-6 divisions, the Nest, recruits a brand-new secret agent to their team: Spy Seal! Follow the newbie spy and his furry colleagues on exciting train rides, high-speed car chases, high-flying air adventures, and down secret underground tunnels, all in an effort to hunt down a dangerous British-turned-Soviet double agent—a slippery spy who poses as an upscale art dealer while covertly killing off important figures of Parliament. What is the reasoning behind this double agent’s terrorist actions? Why are three masked bunny rabbits vandalizing paintings at every London gallery? And just what is this elusive Corten-Steel Phoenix anyway? Check out this deluxe format edition to decipher the answers to these and other puzzling questions in RICH TOMMASO’s (SHE WOLF) latest series, visually reminiscent of such classic comics as The Adventures of Tintin and Usagi Yojimbo.
