Not to keep adding to the pre-NYCC extravaganzas galore, tomorrow (WEDNESDAY), the Strand Bookstore is playing host to a talk that features CHARLES BURNS, CHRIS WARE, AND CHIP KIDD. It is definitely worth checking out if you want to get your NYCC brain-juices flowing; or perhaps if you weren’t able to get your hands on the now sold-out passes, this is your opportunity to listen to some of the industry’s greatest chat about their phenomenal new works.
If you’re a fan of the graphic novel, then this is your night! Chris Ware, author of Acme Novelty and Jimmy Corrigan, the Smartest Kid on Earth joins writer Charles Burns, creator of Black Hole, to discuss their latest work with esteemed author, editor and graphic designer Chip Kidd. Ware’s new novel, Building Stories and Burn’s new book, The Hive, will be talked about, but so will everything from the process of writing a graphic novel to the popularity of this genre- and if that wasn’t enough, slides will be shown to illustrate the talk.
Buy a copy of Building Stories, The Hive or a $10 Strand gift card in order to attend this event. All options admit one person. Please note that payment is required for all online event orders at the time of checkout. The event will be located in the Strand’s 2nd floor Art Department at our store at 828 Broadway at 12th Street.
