Join us in store on Thursday, 7/14 at 7pm, as we celebrate the release of Greg Lockard's new graphic novel, Liebestrasse! He, along with fellow graphic novel authors Jeremy Holt and Alex Segura, will discuss the growing diversity in graphic novels and comics, both in the stories they tell, and who is telling those stories.
RSVP for free here!
Jeremy Holt is a non-binary author whose most recent works include Made in Korea, Virtually Yours, Before Houdini, After Houdini, and Skip to the End. They have received high praise from Brian K. Vaughan (Y the Last Man, Saga, Runaways) and NYT crossword constructor David Kwong.
An original art page from their book After Houdini was acquired by The Houdini Museum of NYC, where it now hangs in its permanent collection.
Originally from no place in particular, they have called Italy, Singapore, England, Norway, and Texas home at various points in their life. They graduated with a B.F.A. in Sound Design from the Savannah College of Art and Design in 2005 and recently relocated to Brooklyn again (third times a charm!) after spending eight years in Vermont.
