Brooklyn Book Festival- hip, smart, diverse and free!
I’m on 2 panels this Sunday, the 22nd, at the Brooklyn Book Festival:
ST. FRANCIS AUDITORIUM
12:00 P.M. The World (According to Cartoonists): Border Crossing Comics: Adrian Tomine (Optic Nerve #13), Rutu Modan (The Property), Dash Shaw (New School), and David Prudhomme (Rebetiko) all explore characters crossing borders -national and personal, real and imagined. Discover how these award-winning cartoonists translate the world through art and story. Moderated by Kent Worcester.
BROOKLYN HISTORICAL SOCIETY AUDITORIUM (128 Pierrepont Street)
2:00 P.M. The New American Dream: What is today’s Great American Novel, anyway? Ayana Mathis (The Twelve Tribes of Hattie), Dash Shaw (New School), and Adam Mansbach (The Dead Run) give us glimpses into a new kind of American Dream: a fifteen-year-old mother of nine; a boy’s island adventures in graphic novel form; and in one case, an American nightmare. Moderated by David Unger.
