  • NYC – March: Book 2 Signing

    March-Book-Two

    Rep. John Lewis, Nate Powell and Andrew Aydin speak on the Civil Rights Era Dweck Center at the Brooklyn Public Library on Wednesday April 8th at 7pm!

    Press Release:

    Congressman John Lewis, an American icon and one of the key figures of the civil rights movement, continues his award-winning graphic novel trilogy with co-writer Andrew Aydin and artist Nate Powell, inspired by a 1950s comic book that helped prepare his own generation to join the struggle. Now, March brings the lessons of history to vivid life for a new generation, urgently relevant for today’s world.

    After the success of the Nashville sit-in campaign, John Lewis is more committed than ever to changing the world through nonviolence — but as he and his fellow Freedom Riders board a bus into the vicious heart of the deep south, they will be tested like never before. Faced with beatings, police brutality, imprisonment, arson, and even murder, the movement’s young activists place their lives on the line while internal conflicts threaten to tear them apart. Congressman Lewis, Mr. Powell and Mr. Aydin will discuss the legacy, the books, and more at Brooklyn Public Library, and will sign their most recent in the March trilogy.

    Girl In Dior Signing Tour

    Gir- In-Dior

    Press Release:

    This April, NBM Publishing, one of the pioneers in graphic novel publishing in the US for 37 years and a leader in literary comic art, proudly launches a sweepingly beautiful biography docudrama of the life of Christian Dior from the launch of his house and his “New Look” in Girl in Dior.

    One of France’s grand dames of comic art, Annie Goetzinger, will be on hand for the premiere of Girl in Dior at MoCCA Arts Festival, one of her many appearances while visiting the United States. Other appearances include a panel at the French Embassy co-sponsored by Christian Dior Couture US and moderated by Dior House illustrator, Bil Donovan and a signing/art display at New York’s Kinokuniya Bookstore.

    The Girl in Dior is Clara, a freshly hired chronicler, fan of fashion and our guide in the busy corridors of the brand new house of Christian Dior. It’s February 12, 1947 and the crème de la crème of Paris Haute Couture is flocking to the momentous event of Dior’s first show. In a flurry of corolla shaped skirts, the parade of models file down the runway. The audience is mesmerized: it’s a triumph! Carmel Snow of Harper’s Bazaar cries out: “It’s quite a revolution, your dresses have such a new look!“ Dior’s career is launched and Clara’s story begins. Soon, she is picked by Dior himself to be his model…

    A biography docudrama marrying fiction and the story of one of the greatest couturier in history, it is also a breathless and stunning presentation of his best designs such as Lauren Bacall wore, rendered by bestselling artist Annie Goetzinger, seen for the first time on this side of the Atlantic.

    Below please find Annie Goetzinger’s appearance schedule.
