CA – Mighty Jack and the Goblin King Signing

Ben Hatke (Zita the Spacegirl, Little Robot) appears in conversation with NYTimes bestselling author Cory Doctorow (Little Brother, In Real Life) at Once Upon a Time Bookstore on Wednesday, September 27, 2017 at 7:00 PM! Hatke will discuss his writing and drawing style, do some sketching, and tell us how his memorable characters are conceived.

About the Book: The garden behind Jack’s house has gone wild with creatures set loose by the magic beans Jack and his kid sister Maddy planted. One particularly mean creature has kidnapped Maddy and carried her off. Now Jack and his neighbor Lilly must follow her to a world between worlds beyond the vines and stalks, where giants grind the bones of human children to feed their beast in the castle up above, and a fearsome goblin king rules down below. It’ll take more than Lilly’s bag of concoctions and tricks, and more than one hero, to rescue Maddy, reunite Jack’s family, and bring them all safely home again.

About the Authors: 

Ben Hatke is the author and illustrator of the New York Times–bestselling Zita the Spacegirl trilogy, the picture books Julia’s House for Lost Creatures and Nobody Likes a Goblin, and the graphic novels Little Robot and Mighty Jack.

Author, activist, journalist, and blogger, Cory Doctorow is known for using his fiction to address topics that matter to him. In the visually stunning In Real Life, his new graphic novel created with cartoonist Jen Wang, he explores adolescence, gaming, poverty, and culture-clash through the story of a female MMO player who befriends a “gold farmer,” a poor Chinese boy whose avatar collects valuable objects in the virtual world and sells them in order to survive in the real one. Stopping in Seattle for a reading and signing of his new book, Doctorow will join us for an introduction of its exciting visuals, thoughtful story, and exploration of the real problems that follow us even into the virtual and entertainment-based worlds we often try to escape inside.

Cory Doctorow is a science fiction author, activist, journalist and blogger, the author of Tor Teens/HarperCollins UK novels like For the Win and the bestselling Little Brother. He was also the former European director of the Electronic Frontier Foundation and co-founded the UK Open Rights Group.

cd-jw-irlCory Doctorow and Jen Wang present In Real Life on Thursday, October 16, 2014 at 7:30 pm!

Anda loves Coarsegold Online, the massively-multiplayer role playing game that she spends most of her free time on. It’s a place where she can be a leader, a fighter, a hero. It’s a place where she can meet people from all over the world, and make friends. Gaming is, for Anda, entirely a good thing.

But things become a lot more complicated when Anda befriends a gold farmer –a poor Chinese kid whose avatar in the game illegally collects valuable objects and then sells them to players from developed countries with money to burn. This behavior is strictly against the rules in Coarsegold, but Anda soon comes to realize that questions of right and wrong are a lot less straightforward when a real person’s real livelihood is at stake.

From acclaimed teen author Cory Doctorow and rising star cartoonist Jen Wang, In Real Life is a sensitive, thoughtful look at adolescence, gaming, poverty, and culture-clash.

Cory Doctorow is a co-editor of Boing Boing and a columnist for multiple publications including the Guardian, Locus, and Publishers Weekly. His award-winning novel Little Brother was a New York Times bestseller, and his most recent novel is Information Doesn’t Want to Be Free. He lives in London.
