  • OR – Once Upon a Cloud Signing

    once

    Claire Keane, a visual development artist at Walt Disney Animation Studios (where she made significant contributions to both Frozen and Tangled), appears at Powell’s City of Books on Saturday, July 25th at 11:00 AM to read from her highly anticipated debut picture book, Once Upon a Cloud (Dial Books).

    Celeste wants to give her mother something special — but what? As she drifts off to sleep, Celeste is swept away. Up, up, into the sky, where the sun, the moon, and the stars are eagerly awaiting her arrival. How grand! They receive her with such kindness that Celeste positively sparkles with delight. And on her way home, it comes to her: the perfect gift. Chosen with care and wrapped with love, it’s just what Celeste was hoping to find.

    OR – Armada Signings

    ecline-armada

    Ernest Cline, author of Ready Player One, signs his new book at Powell’s City of Books on both Burnside and Cedar Hills on Wednesday, July 15, 2015!

    Armada (Crown) is an inventive, heartwarming, and completely nerdtastic adventure from Ernest Cline, bestselling author of Ready Player One. It’s just another day of high school for Zack Lightman. He’s daydreaming through his boring math class, with just one more month to go until graduation and freedom. Then he glances out his classroom window and spots the flying saucer. At first, Zack thinks he’s going crazy. A minute later, he’s sure of it. Because the UFO he’s staring at is straight out of the videogame he plays every night, a popular online flight simulator called Armada — in which gamers protect the earth from alien invaders. But what Zack’s seeing is all too real. And his skills — as well as those of millions of gamers across the world — are going to be needed to save the earth from what’s about to befall it.

    Please note: Cline will join us for a lunchtime book signing at our downtown store at 12:30 PM and an evening event (reading and book signing) at our Cedar Hills Crossing location at 7:00 PM.

    OR – Marc Bell & Anders Nilsen Book Launch

    fwc0714

    Press Release:

    Acclaimed cartoonists Marc Bell (Stroppy,) and Anders Nilsen (Poetry is Useless) will be at Floating World Comics on Tuesday July 14th, from 6-8pm reading from and signing their new Drawn & Quarterly books!

    Marc Bell will be discussing his first full-length graphic novella, Stroppy, which paints a strange and wordplay-loving world in which the titular hero hopes to win big in a songwriting contest organized by the All-Star Schnauzer Band. Mishap and hilarity ensue as Bell explodes the divide between fine art, doodling, and comics. Anders Nilsen will talk about Poetry is Useless, an expansive, beautifully-packaged collection of his sketchbooks. Poetry is Useless is part travelogue, part commentary on politics and culture, and part conversational ping-pong match.

    Marc Bell was born in London, Ontario, and has befuddled and bemused his readers for almost twenty years. He is the author of Hot Potatoe, Pure Pajamas, and Shrimpy and Paul and Friends. His comics have appeared in many Canadian weeklies, Vice, and LA Weekly. He is a twin.

    Anders Nilsen is an award-winning cartoonist and visual artist. He is the author of several books, including Don’t Go Where I Can’t Follow, Rage of Poseidon, and the magnum opus Big Questions, for which he was awarded the 2012 Lynd Ward Graphic Novel Prize by the Pennsylvania Center for the Book and was nominated for the top prize at the Angoulême International Comics Festival. Nilsen has exhibited his drawing and painting internationally. He lives and works in Minneapolis.

    OR – March: Book Two Signing

    March-Book-Two

    Congressman John Lewis and co-writer Andrew Aydin appear at Powell’s Books on Saturday June 27, 2015 at 2:00 pm!

    Congressman John Lewis, an American icon and one of the key figures of the civil rights movement, continues his award-winning graphic novel trilogy, inspired by a 1950s comic book that helped prepare his own generation to join the struggle. March: Book Two (Top Shelf), co-written by Andrew Aydin (with artist Nate Powell), 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, 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.

    OR – Mike’s Place Signing

    mikesplaceArtist Koren Shadmi appears at Floating World Comics on Friday, June 12, 2015 from 5:00 – 7:00 pm to sign Mike’s Place.

    Koren Shadmi is an illustrator and cartoonist whose graphic novels have been published in France, Italy, Spain, Israel, and the US. His illustrations have won several awards from the Society of Illustrators, and Charles Burns selected his work for The Best American Comics 2009 anthology.

    ABOUT MIKE’S PLACE:
    There’s a rule at Mike’s Place: never, ever talk politics or religion. At this blues bar on the Tel Aviv beachfront, an international cast of characters mingles with the locals, and everyone is welcome to grab a beer and forget the conflict outside. At least, that’s the story Jack and Joshua want to tell in their documentary.

    But less than a month after they begin filming, Mike’s Place is the target of a deadly suicide bombing. Jack, Joshua, and the Mike’s Place family survive the only way they know how-by keeping the camera rolling.

    Written by filmmakers Jack Baxter and Joshua Faudem and illustrated by award-winning cartoonist Koren Shadmi, Mike’s Place chronicles the true story of an infamous terrorist attack in painstaking detail. Rarely has the slow build to tragedy, and the rebirth that follows, been captured with such a compassionate and unflinching eye.
