MA – Keef Returns to the Bean

KEITH KNIGHT, Cartoonist of THE KNIGHT LIFE and THE K CHRONICLES posted on his blog:

With suggestions from some of my Boston area homies, I have set up a series of signings  coinciding with the release of  the first Knight Life collection: the Knight Life, Chivalry Ain’t Dead, for my trip back east in early June.  Here they be:

Thursday, June 3rd 7pm: FRANK E. CONVERSE LIBRARY-Malden, MA (36 Salem St.)

I will begin my Boston area book tour with a signing directly across the street from myold high school!  I am psyched to be signing for my first collection of dailies at the place where I spent hours perusing Doonesbury and Peanuts collections as a kid.  Not only that, but I was presented my first (and only) arts scholarship at the historic landmark, which was designed by architect H. H. Richardson. There’ll be a slideshow, Q & A, book  signing,  and then beers at the Dockside!  Read more details here.

Saturday, June 5th 6pm: GULU-GULU CAFE- Salem, MA (247 Essex St.)

Next, I’ll be signing in the lovely town of Salem, Mass, home of my alma mater, Salem State College.  It’ll  be alumni weekend,  AND the Salem Arts Festival that weekend, so there’ll be plenty of mischief going on.  The Gulu-Gulu cafe looks like a place I would’ve spent most of my time in, had it been around back in the day.  Joining me in this slideshow/book signing will be fellow SSC alum and award-winning cartoonist Mark Parisi!! Beers at Dodge Street following event.

Wednesday, June 9, 6-8pm MILLION YEAR PICNIC, Harvard Square, Cambridge, MA

I can’t make a trip to Boston without a signing at the finest comics emporium in the area, Million Year Picnic. At one signing, Cornel West was walking by outside the shop and my aunt stopped him and took his pic alongside my cousin.  She never invited him in  and I’m still bitter about it.  At the last signing, a guy asked me how much my Knight Life originals were.  I said “One twenty five.”  He proceeded to take one dollar and a quarter out of his pocket to pay me.

What I’m saying is anything can happen at MYP, and it usually does.  Beers at Shay’s after the event.

Saturday, June 12, 4pm NE Chapter of NCS Cartoonist Dinner, Johnny D’s Somerville, MA

I’m the guest of honor at this annual shin-dig put on by the New England Chapter of the National Cartoonists Society.  It’s pretty elaborate with a great dinner, drinks and a presentation by yers truly.  The event is  open to cartoonists and aspiring cartoonists only.  You don’t have to be a member of the NCS (you just pay a little more).

You gotta RSVP by May 28th, so send an email to lynn@offthemark.com asking for info.
