Don't miss the opportunity to see comics legend Art Spiegelman for a multimedia presentation and book signing in Ypsilanti!
Art Spiegelman has almost single-handedly brought comic books out of the toy closet and onto literature shelves winning the Pulitzer Prize in 1992 for his masterful graphic novel, Maus. Join us for a rare opportunity to hear Spiegelman as he takes us on a chronological tour of the evolution of comics, explaining the medium and why they should not be ignored.

The Snow Queen
A heartbroken man turns to religion after seeing a vision in the sky above Central Park, while his musician brother takes drugs he thinks will help him compose a ballad for his seriously ill wife. A darkly luminous new novel from the Pulitzer Prize–winning author of The Hours.
