Prepare yourselves!

In conjunction with the annual Brooklyn Book Festival, Fantagraphics Books has kindly agreed to loan us a massive chunk of their talent pool for the night. Artists and books on hand will be as follows:
Ed Piskor – Hip Hop Family Tree
Ulli Lust – Today Is The Last Day Of The Rest Of Your Life
Charles Forsman – TEOTFW
Leslie Stein – Eye Of The Majestic Creature
Tom Kaczynski – Beta Testing The Apocalypse
There’ll be books for every taste imaginable, and as ever, bubbly refreshments to wash them down with. We’re expecting a blowout, and we hope you’ll be a part of it!

Gabrielle Bell and Tom Kaczynski appear at Powell’s Books on Friday, October 19th at 7:30PM.
This evening, Gabrielle Bell presents The Voyeurs (Uncivilized Books), a memoir of five years in the life of cartoonist, diarist, and filmmaker Gabrielle Bell. It collects episodes from her award-winning series Lucky, in which she travels to Tokyo, Paris, the South of France, and all over the United States, but remains anchored by her beloved Brooklyn, where sidekick Tony provides ongoing insight, offbeat humor, and enduring friendship. Gabrielle will be joined this evening by fellow graphic novelist Tom Kaczynski, who will be talking about his forthcoming book, Beta Testing the Apocalypse (Fantagraphics).
