Books Reading Tonight
posted by August 29 at 9:50 AMon
In the run-up to Bumbershoot, there’s only one reading going on tonight, but it’s a doozy: Dan Clowes will be at the Fantagraphics Store in Georgetown. While Ghost World (movie trailer above) is a pretty amazing thing, I’m especially fond of Ice Haven, a book that Clowes put out maybe three or four years ago. It’s the story of a kidnapping in a small town, told in all kinds of different cartooning styles. And The Death Ray, which I believe was the last issue of Eightball published to date, is pretty great too. You should go.
(Sigh.) Whatever happened to Thora Birch?
The full readings calendar, including the next week or so, is here.
