NC – Amelia Earhart Bio Signing

Comments Off on NC – Amelia Earhart Bio Signing

Sunday, February 21, 2010, from 2pm until 4pm, Chapel Hill Comics will host Ben Towle, artist of Amelia Earhart: This Broad Ocean, published by Hyperion/Disney and presented by the Center for Cartoon Studies. It’s a graphic novel aimed at young readers, which was written by Sarah Stewart Taylor and drawn by Mr. Towle. It will be released this February.

In addition to signing copies of Amelia Earhart; This Broad Ocean, Mr. Towle will also give a presentation about the process he used to create the art, which should be highly interesting both to people who want to learn about how a professional cartoonist works, and kids who want to see how the book they’re reading was made!

In addition to copies of Amelia Earhart: This Broad Ocean, we’ll also have some copies available of Mr. Towle’s previous works, Midnight Sun and Farewell, Georgia, both of which were written and drawn by Mr. Towle. We’re very much looking forward to this event!
