Raina Telgemeier and Me, Hanging Out and Talking

Sat 5/7/16 | San Francisco, CA

This is going to be SO FUN.  Raina Telgemeier is one of the most important cartoonists working today.  Her books have pretty much established a whole genre within the graphic novel category. Now she’s paving the way for a new generation of comics creators.

She and I are going to be hanging out and talking.  We came up in comics at the same time, so we’ve been friends for a while.  We’ve hung out and talked before, but this time we’ll be on stage!

Saturday, May 7, 2016
12:00pm to 2:00pm
