Mini NYC Tour Next Week


Julia Wertz is in town promoting her amazing new book Tenements, Towers & Trash, and she’s invited me to celebrate with her. Also, I’m doing an event at Strand Books for the newest Best American Comics, guest-edited by Ben Katchor. Here is a schedule of events:

Monday, October 2nd: Panels to the People at Word Brooklyn with Julia, Lauren Barnett and me. Sorry, all you extraordinary people not on Facebook (how do you manage?), but I can only find a link there. But it’s at Word Brooklyn in Greenpoint,126 Franklin St, Brooklyn, New York 11222, from seven to nine.

Wednesday, October 4th: Best American Comics at Strand Books with Bill KartalopoulosKim Deitch, Eli Valley, and Josh Bayer.
Thursday, October 5th: I’m not going to be part of this but I’ll be in attendance, and it will be a great show of very funny cartoonists: Tenements, Towers & Trash Book launch with Julia, Liana Finck and Emily Flake at Powerhouse Books
Saturday, October 7th: Lit Crawl Brooklyn with Julia, Leslie Stein and me at Die Stammkneipe, 710 Fulton St. 6-7 (I can’t find any media about this yet but let’s just all trust that it will happen, ok?)
Tenements, Towers & Trash is a beautiful, intricate, funny, treasure trove of a book about New York City, come and see for yourself!
Also, in case you missed it, here is the conclusion of my Paris Review Series.
