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.

Just In

Chestnut Street

By Maeve Binchy

Book

Across town from St. Jarlath’s Crescent, featured in Minding Frankie, is Chestnut Street, where neighbors come and go. Behind their closed doors we encounter very different people with different life circumstances, occupations, and sensibilities.
