Chapel Hill Comics is proud to announce our next big signing event: On Sunday, October 7, from 2pm until 4pm, cartoonist Hope Larson will sign her new graphic novel adaptation of Madeleine L’Engle’s A Wrinkle in Time!
The world already knows Meg and Charles Wallace Murry, Calvin O’Keefe, and the three Mrs-Who, Whatsit, and Which-the memorable and wonderful characters who fight off a dark force and save our universe in the Newbery award-winning classic A Wrinkle in Time. But in 50 years of publication, the book has never been illustrated. Now, Hope Larson takes the classic story to a new level with her vividly imagined interpretations of tessering and favorite characters like the Happy Medium and Aunt Beast. Perfect for old fans and winning over new ones, this graphic novel adaptation is a must-read.
Hope Larson is the author of four graphic novels, including Mercury and Chiggers. Her short comics have been featured on the Op-Ed page of the New York Times and in several anthologies, notably the Flight series and Image Comics’ Tori Amos-inspired Comic Book Tattoo.
Hope has been nominated for cartooning awards in the US, Canada and Europe, and is the recipient of a 2006 Ignatz Award and a 2007 Eisner Award. She holds a BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
Come meet Hope and pick up a copy of the graphic novel! It should be a blast!
