Gene Yang appears at Little Island Comics Saturday, September 21st, 2013 from 3:00pm-4:30pm for his new graphic novels Boxers and Saints!

Press Release:

The Beguiling is proud to welcome respected author Gene Yang (American Born Chinese, Eternal Smile) to Toronto for the debut of his new pair of graphic novels, Boxers and Saints. Boxers & Saints is an innovative new graphic novel in two volumes – the parallel stories of two young people caught up on opposite sides of a violent rift, the Boxer Rebellion of 1898. American Born Chinese author Gene Luen Yang brings his clear-eyed storytelling and trademark magical realism to the complexities of the Boxer Rebellion and lays bare the foundations of extremism, rebellion, and faith.

Gene Yang will visit The Beguiling for an afternoon moderated Q&A session with store manager Christopher Butcher, which will be followed by an in-store signing. This is a rare visit to Toronto for Yang, a highly-regarded New York Times bestselling author, so we hope you can make it out!
