Gene Luen Yang appears at Green Apple Books on Tuesday September 10th at 5:00pm!

Press Release:

Green Apple Books is excited to welcome local author and illustrator Gene Luen Yang for the release of his new graphic novels Boxers & Saints. Gene will be in-store signing and sketching for all his fans.

In two volumes, Boxers & Saints (First Second) tells two parallel stories in two books. The first is of Little Bao, a Chinese peasant boy whose village is abused and plundered by Westerners claiming the role of missionaries. In the second volume, Yang lays out the opposite side of the conflict. A girl whose village has no place for her is taken in by Christian missionaries and finds, for the first time, a home with them.

Gene Luen Yang began drawing comic books in the fifth grade. He has written and drawn a number of titles, including Duncan’s Kingdom, The Rosary Comic Book, Prime Baby and Animal Crackers. American Born Chinese, his first graphic novel from First Second, was a National Book Award finalist, as well as the winner of the Printz Award and an Eisner Award. He also won an Eisner for The Eternal Smile, a collaboration with Derek Kirk Kim. Recently, he has been working on the New York Times Best-Selling comics series Avatar: The Last Airbender.
