I WON’T have a table at MoCCA this year, but I WILL be on a panel.

YA? Why not!
Young Adult graphic novels are swiftly gaining popularity among librarians, teachers, and most importantly, young readers! Join Hope Larson (Chiggers, Mercury), Jillian Tamaki (Skim), Raina Telgemeier (Smile, Baby-sitters Club), and Tracy White (How I Made it to Eighteen) for a discussion about their work, their influences, and their audience. Moderated by The Beat’s Heidi MacDonald.

69th Regiment Armory
68 Lexington Avenue, NYC

I will cart along a few copies of Skim in case you want to buy one.

This should also be a fun event: Drink and Draw Like a Lady is a pre-MoCCA party for  comicbook womenfolk.

Friday, April 9th, 2010
7:30 to 10:30pm
192 Books
192 Tenth Avenue at 21st Street, NYC

(P.S. The adorable poster is by Lucy Knisley; thank-you to Hope Larson for organizing.)
