• November 22-24th I’ll be in Miami for the Miami Book Fair, a fabled event which I am thrilled to witness with my own eyes. I’ll take part in a panel on Saturday at 4:30 called “Graphic Novels in Libraries, from Banned to Blowing Up” with Karen Green, Rich Johnson, Robin Brenner and George O’Connor. You can see all the comics programming here. The MBF is one of the biggest events in all Miami, one of the biggest book festivals in the US, and I’ve never been before so I’m eager to experience the hoopla firsthand. Also, never been to Miami, so…mojitos here I come. I’ll be kind of in and out at this, as by then I can only imagine my interest in travel will be at a low ebb. Except after that I’m going to Maine for T-Day. Will the cats even remember me by then?
