Brooklyn Book Festival on Sunday, Sept. 18th

I will be doing a panel about drawing from life at the Brooklyn Book Festival on Sunday, Sept. 18th.


ST. FRANCIS SCREENING ROOM
4:00 P.M. Drawing a Life. How do you draw someone else’s memories? Eisner-nominated Dean Haspiel (Cuba: My Revolution) illustrated the memoir of revolutionary turned refugee Inverna Lockpez, Pulitzer nominee Lauren Redniss (Radioactive: A Tale of Love and Fallout) blends research and imagination in a haunting portrait of Marie Curie and rising star artist GB Tran (Vietnamerica: A Family’s Journey) turns to his own family’s history to portray a war-torn, transnational generation. Moderated by Hillary Chute, author of Graphic Women: Life Narrative and Contemporary Comics.
