The Ohio State University Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum and the Wexner Center for the Arts are thrilled to host award-winning author and illustrator MO WILLEMS in conversation with HILARY PRICE, the creator behind Rhymes With Orange. Mo will be discussing his life, career, and creative process. Parents, educators, and aspiring children’s book authors won’t want to miss this event!
Mo Willems is a number one New York Times best-selling author and illustrator, and has been awarded three Caldecott Honors for his books Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!, Knuffle Bunny: A Cautionary Tale, and Knuffle Bunny Too: A Case of Mistaken Identity. This year, Mo celebrates the 25th and final book in his long-running Elephant and Piggie series, which has twice won the Theodor Seuss Geisel Medal.
Joining Mo in conversation will be Hilary B. Price, the creator behind the internationally syndicated comic strip Rhymes With Orange. Price has been awarded the “Best Newspaper Panel” four times by the National Cartoonists Society, and her work also appears in Parade Magazine, The Funny Times, People and Glamour.
This free event will be held in Mershon Auditorium. A book signing with Mo and Hilary will take place immediately after the event in the lobby.
Parking is available during off-peak hours at the Ohio Union North Garage.

Ray Friesen will be signing Small Gods: The Discworld Graphic Novel at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Saturday 6th August from 4 – 5pm.
‘Just because you can’t explain it, doesn’t mean it’s a miracle.’
In the beginning was the Word. And the Word was: ‘Hey, you!’ This is the Discworld, after all, and religion is a controversial business. Everyone has their own opinion, and indeed their own gods, of every shape and size, and all elbowing for space at the top. In such a competitive environment, it’s certainly not helpful to be reduced to appearing in the form of a tortoise, a manifestation far below god-like status in anyone’s book.
In such instances, you need an acolyte, and fast: for the Great God Om, Brutha the novice is the Chosen One – or at least the only One available. He wants peace and justice and brotherly love. He also wants the Inquisition to stop torturing him now, please…
The bestselling novel by Terry Pratchett now adapted into graphic novel form with new artwork by Ray Friesen.
Ray Friesen, like Sir Terry, has facial hair and a penchant for hats, although he claims that this is a coincidence. Ray was nominated for the Ignatz Award for Most Promising New Talent during his first year of cartooning professionally.

Collector’s Paradise invites you to a Release Signing for Image Comics’ newest series, SNOTGIRL, by Scott Pilgrim creator Bryan Lee O’Malley and a sensational artist, Leslie Hung on Saturday, July 30, 2016 from noon till 2:00 PM.
