8:30PM - Joe Sacco artist talk with Leila Abdelrazaq (Auditorium)

Graphic storytelling, journalism and non-fiction novels are all the rage. Joe Sacco is one of the leading illustrator/authors in this field with a long list of awards for his publications. Sacco inserts himself into his witness narratives creating both dynamic and reflexive reportings from many contemporary war zones and occupation sites such as Bosnia (The Fixer) and Palestine (Footnotes in Gaza, Palestine). The importance of his work has been compared to Maus, including the volume on American poverty co-authored with Chris Hedges (Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt). He is currently working on a new book about mineral extraction rights and the Dene First Nations.

Joe Sacco will be in conversation with Leila Abdelrazaq.  Leila is a Chicago-born, Palestinian author and artist. Her debut graphic novel, Baddawi was shortlisted for the 2015 Palestine Book Awards and has been translated into three languages. She is currently a core member of For The People Artist's Collective. She is also the founder of Bigmouth Press & Comix.

Joe Sacco’s graphic novels will be on sale courtesy of Another Story Bookshop.
