MA – Trident Books’ Graphic Novel Night

00trident-sept15

Press Release:

Trident Booksellers is excited to welcome Raúl “the Third” Gonzales and Diane Fraser on Monday, September 14th at 7:00 PM for a night of readings and discussion about their books Lowriders in Space and Growing Up Superheroes: The Extraordinary Adventures of Deihlia Nye.

Raúl “the Third” Gonzales, Illustrator, Lowriders In Space, and Diane Fraser, author, Growing Up Superheroes, The Extraordinary Adventures of Deihlia Nye, will conduct a panel discussion titled “Out of the Margins, Into the Center”. In this panel discussion, Raúl and Diane will discuss their experience developing books based around cultures and characters typically only depicted marginally in books and media. The subject of Lowriders in Space, an award winning graphic novel for children, is lowrider culture, set in a fantasy world that is based on Latino culture. Growing Up Superheroes is the author’s memoir about her niece, Deihlia Nye, a kick-ass girl with a disability who travels to France, Ecuador, and Hawaii in her wheelchair, who lives and works independently in Boston, has adventures every time she can, inspires everyone around her to take risks, and was a founder of Boston Social Nerds.

Latino culture, lowrider culture, and people with disabilities are rarely the subject and center of any mainstream book, TV show, or film. These books center around cultures and characters that haven’t been explored in mainstream media, offering rich, fresh perspectives and experiences for readers of all ages. Neither book hits readers over the head in its delivery of the subject, rather they’re both wildly entertaining, carrying the reader along on grand adventures.

Press Release:

Have you ever yearned for a life at sea? Wondered what it would be like to sail aboard an 18th century vessel? Been perplexed by the confusing nautical terminology in Melville and O’Brian? Join tall ship sailor-turned-cartoonist Lucy Bellwood as she reads from her educational, autobiographical comic series Baggywrinkles. Whether working as a deckhand on the Lady Washington or documenting the restoration of the Charles W. Morgan at Mystic Seaport, her visual insights into life on board historic vessels will illuminate and delight.

About the author: Lucy Bellwood is a cartoonist and illustrator working out of Periscope Studio in Portland, OR. Since 2007 she has been an avid lover of tall ships and sailing, working aboard vessels up and down the West Coast. In 2014 she traveled to Boston to document the 38th voyage of the freshly-restored 1840s wooden whaling ship the Charles W. Morgan. Her work has appeared in Symbolia Magazine, The Nib, Cartozia Tales, and many other venues. You can find her online at lucybellwood.com or on Twitter as @LuBellWoo.
