Canada Reads 2011 events
Drawn & Quarterly Bookstore
Come and meet graphic novelist/cartoonist Jeff Lemire, whose Essex County is in the running for this year's Canada Reads.
Meet the artist, ask him questions and see how he works. You could also win one of several sets of the Canada Reads books.
Homerun host Sue Smith and arts reporter Jeanette Kelly will also be hand, and joining us on stage will be Drawn & Quarterly's head publisher and chief, Chris Oliveros, as well as Montreal's own graphic novelist Sherwin Sullivan Tjia, author of The Hipless Boy, nominated for a Doug Wright Award and four Ignatz Awards, and Matt Forsythe, the award-winning illustrator and comic book artist whose book Ojingogo won the 2009 Doug Wright Award for Canadian cartooning.
The discussion will be recorded and segments will air on Homerun.
I will also be available for a live online Q&A tomorrow at 2 pm Easern.
