MD – Poe: Stories and Poems Launch Party

Join the Takoma Park Library on Tuesday, August 1st at 7:30 PM for the launch of the newest book by award-winning graphic novelist Gareth Hinds. Known for his graphic novel adaptations of Shakespeare plays, Beowulf, and The Odyssey, Hinds this time tackles Edgar Allen Poe in Poe: Stories and Poems. Hinds has won critical praise for his previous books, with reviewers noting his fine line and expert use of color, shadow and perspective in bringing the emotions of a story to the fore. Politics & Prose will be selling copies of Hinds’ books, but our event is free and no purchase or registration is required to attend. Note: our event is best for teens and adults because of the gothic horror nature of Poe’s stories, amplified by Hinds’ illustrations.

MA – Samurai Rising Signing

0000000-samurai-risingGareth Hinds appears at An Unlikely Story on Sunday, March 13, 2016 at 2:00 PM to introduce his newest collaboration, Samurai Rising: The Epic Life of Minamoto Yoshitsune, an illustrated historical account written by Pamela S. Turner. Gareth will talk about illustrating his latest book, and conduct a drawing demonstration. Watching Gareth in action is something any graphic novel fan or budding artist won’t want to miss!

About the Book:
Minamoto Yoshitsune should not have been a samurai. But his story is legend in this real-life “Game of Thrones.”
This epic tale of warriors and bravery, rebellion and revenge, reads like a novel, but this is the true story of the greatest samurai in Japanese history.

When Yoshitsune was just a baby, his father went to war with a rival samurai family and lost. His father was killed, his mother captured, and his brothers sent away. Yoshitsune was raised in his enemy’s household until he was sent away to live in a monastery. He grew up skinny and small. Not the warrior type. But he did inherit his family pride and when the time came for the Minamoto to rise up against their enemy once again, Yoshitsune was there. His daring feats, such as storming a fortress by riding on horseback down the side of a cliff and his glorious victory at sea, secured Yoshitsune’s place in history and his story is still being told centuries later.

macbethGareth Hinds appears at Politics & Prose to sign his graphic novel adaptation of Macbeth on Tuesday, March 3, 2015 at 10:30 am.

Shakespeare’s classic story of dark ambitions, madness, and murder springs to life in a masterful new graphic novel by Gareth Hinds.

Set against the moody backdrop of eleventh-century Scotland, Gareth Hinds’s captivating, richly illustrated interpretation takes readers into the claustrophobic mind of a man driven mad by ambition. An evil seed takes root in the mind of Macbeth, a general in the king’s army, when three witches tell him he will one day be king. At the urging of his wife, he resolves to take the throne by the most direct path: a dagger in the heart of King Duncan. But “blood will have blood,” and when others grow suspicious of his sudden rise to power, is Macbeth prepared to commit more murders to keep the crown?

Gareth Hinds is the acclaimed creator of the graphic novels The Odyssey, Beowulf, Romeo and Juliet, The Merchant of Venice, and King Lear. He lives near Washington, D.C.
