Guess who’s coming to Brookline Public Library?

Friday, October 3rd, at 3:00pm at the Main Library, join us for a visit from one of today’s comics superstars: Raina Telgemeier is appearing in Brookline to talk about her latest #1 New York Times best-selling memoir Sisters!

Thanks to our friends at the Massachusetts Independent Comics Expo (MICE), the Brookine Booksmith ( @brooklinebooksmith ), and Scholastic Graphix, we’re bringing Raina here to your local library for a reading and signings.

The event kicks off at 3:00pm! Please be aware the event will be seated first come, first serve, and we’ll open the doors at 2:30pm. The room capacity is 96, so be sure to get there on time to get a good seat.

Raina will also be appearing over the weekend, October 4-5, at the annual MICE show over in Cambridge at Lesley College, along with a whole roster of amazing creators, so be sure to go and check out the Expo too!

Following the critical success of her graphic memoir Smile, Eisner Award-winning and #1 New York Times bestselling comics creator Raina Telgemeier returns to her graphic memoir style with the companion Sisters. In full-color comic format, and with her signature humor and charm, Raina tells the story of her antagonistic relationship with her younger sister, which unfolds during the course of a road trip from their home in San Francisco to a family reunion in Colorado.

Raina Telgemeier grew up in San Francisco and moved to New York City, where she earned an illustration degree at the School of Visual Arts. SMILE, a critically acclaimed graphic memoir based on her childhood, was a New York Times bestseller, appearing for more than 95 weeks on the list, winner of the Eisner Award for Best Publication for Teens, and received a Boston Globe-Horn Book Honor. Her most recent book, the full–color graphic novel DRAMA was another #1 New York Times bestseller and Kirkus raved in a starred review, “this book will undoubtedly make readers stand up and cheer.” Raina also adapted and illustrated The Baby-sitters Club graphic novels, which were selected for YALSA’s Great Graphic Novels for Teens list and Booklist’s Top 10 Graphic Novels for Youth list. Raina lives in Astoria, New York, with her husband and fellow comics artist, Dave Roman. To learn more, visit her online at goRaina.com and on Twitter at @GoRaina.

I’m SO excited.  Who else is excited?

Since the night he lost everything, Argus has stayed put, alone in the woods. Even when offered an opportunity to move away and start a new life, he maintains: “my place is here.” Although he is happy to shoot an arrow into the wolf-dragon now and then, he does not plot revenge. He just survives, day by day, living with his dog in an impressive treehouse. The story that he chooses to tell people (and himself) ends on that one tragic night.
