Slideshow, reading, and book signing for Emily the Strange: The Lost Days
Emily the Strange: 13 years old. Able to leap tall buildings, probably, if she felt like it. More likely to be napping with her four black cats; or cobbling together a particle accelerator out of lint, lentils, and safety pins; or rocking out on drums/ guitar/saxophone/zither; or painting a swirling feral sewer mural; or forcing someone to say “swirling feral sewer mural” 13 times fast . . . and pointing and laughing. The Lost Days is her first novel.
Rob Reger has grown Emily the Strange from an image on a few skateboards and T-shirts to an international fashion brand and publishing phenomenon. He lives in the Bay Area. A former high school English teacher, Jessica Gruner owns a clothing boutique in San Francisco. She lives in the Bay Area.
