Venerable Victorian postcard subject serves as setting for POSTCARDS signing:
Ventnor, NJ writer Chris Stevens and Brooklyn, NY artist Gia-Bao Tran will be signing copies of Postcards: True Stories That Never Happened (Villard Books; On-Sale Now), at Lucy the Margate Elephant historical landmark on August 29, 2007. Stevens and Tran are the creators of “Blue,” the lead story of the graphic novel anthology, which pays homage to the innocent age of Atlantic City.
“Blue” is the story of an Atlantic City native returning home and trying to find a connection with his grandmother, a woman who’s not as sharp as she used to be. An image of Lucy on a postcard becomes their means of escape into the landmarks (and relationships) of their past. Creators Stevens and Tran will be signing copies of Postcards: True Stories That Never Happened at the building that inspired it all—Lucy the Margate Elephant.
