Comments Off

Cartoonist Jimmy Johnson signs at The Booksellers at Laurelwood on Satruday February 25, 2012 from 1:00pm – 2:00pm. Johnson writes on his website, “This signing in the adopted hometown of you-know-who will be at 1 p.m., and I’m excited. I lived for 12 years in western Tennessee, not in Memphis but within its gravitational pull. This will be something of a homecoming.”

Press Release:

The Booksellers at Laurelwood is honored to host comic strip writer and artist Jimmy Johnson for a book signing event. His new book, Beaucoup Arlo & Janis is the long-awaited collection from the syndicated comic strip Arlo & Janis.  Arranged chronologically, the works within create an arresting timeline that registers the change and growth of Arlo & Janis over 25 years, a core sample of comedy that will fascinate fans of this truly one-of-a-kind strip. It’s the best of the humor that made Arlo & Janis one of the most popular comic strips among newspaper readers wherever it appears.
