Who says you have to wait until September for some SPX action?
The Small Press Expo is co-sponsoring a tremendously cool comics event for our DC-area people, hosted by our good buds at Politics and Prose (if you ask me, the crown jewel of Washington, DC’s independent bookstores).
The incredible Guy Delisle is coming to Politics & Prose on April 26th, touring in support of the English translation of his latest graphic novel, Jerusalem, debuting this month from our friends at Drawn & Quarterly.
D&Q has a great preview of Jerusalem online that you should most assuredly check out if you are unfamiliar with Guy’s work. Delisle is famous for his first-person travelogues from places like Burma, North Korea and China.
In Jerusalem he recounts a year his family spent in Israel while his wife worked with Doctors without Borders. Originally published last year as Chroniques de Jérusalem, the graphic novelwon the Angoulême Comics Festival Prize for Best Album in 2012.
As a little extra bonus, EVERYONE who picks up a signed copy of Jerusalem at the April 26th event will also receive a FREE PASS to the 2012 Small Press Expo.
That’s pretty rad, right?
We would absolutely love it if you’d help share the word about the event.
So tell your comics-loving pals to come on out next Tursday, April 26th to see Guy Delisle at Politics and Prose. Start time is 7:30 PM!
Let’s show Guy a great welcome in DC!
