Matt Forsythe is the Doug Wright Award-winning, Eisner nominated author of Ojingogo, a wonderful wordless graphic novel from Drawn & Quarterly Books.

Now Matt is coming to Toronto to celebrate the releases of a trio of excellent new books for all ages and interests!
Little Island @ 3pm: Join Matt as he signs and sketches for young fans and their parents at Little Island Comics from 3pm-4:30pm, in support of his first children’s picture book My Name Is Elizabeth. A fun read for parents and grown-ups alike who’ve always hated getting stuck with a nick-name, My Name Is Elizabeth is a New York Times Notable picture book.
Little Island will have a variety of original paintings by Forsythe from My Name is Elizabeth on display during this event, a rare opportunity to see some of the beautiful originals he’s created, so don’t miss out!
The Central @ 6pm: Then in the evening, join us for the launch of Jinchalo, Matt Forsythe’s new full-length wordless graphic novel from Drawn & Quarterly, and for his brand new comic book about teaching comics, Comics Class, from Koyama Press! Forsythe will be on stage at The Central (just next door to The Beguiling), and he has put together a great presentation about his new project(s)! Forsythe will be interviewed on stage about creating comics, teaching kids, travelling and more! Plus a signing session will follow.
It’s gonna be a full, awesome day of great comics, graphic novels, and picture books for all ages. Come on out and enjoy!
