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 Invisible Woman
Nelly, a happily-married mother and schoolteacher, is haunted by her past. Her memories, provoked by remorse and guilt, take us back in time to follow the story of her relationship with Charles Dickens with whom she discovered an exciting but fragile complicity.
