Join the Burlingame Public Library for an event with Paul Madonna, who will discuss his new book Close Enough for the Angels, along with a presentation of images on Thursday, February 15, 2018 at 7:00 PM. Paul Madonna uses his signature blend of drawing and storytelling to deliver a beautiful and entertaining novel filled with suspense, surprise, and humor. With over one hundred lush and haunting drawings, this full-length, character-driven story is a fresh and innovative reinvention of the illustrated novel. Books will be available for purchase from Books Inc. at the event.
