This Sunday, October 12, our friends over at Storyopolis are presenting a once in a lifetime event with the legendary Art Spiegelman!!! Art Spiegelman is a revolutionary pioneer, artist, editor, and visionary for the medium of comics and the emerging graphic novel. World-renowned for his Pulitzer Prize-winning graphic novel memoir, "Maus," and numerous other acclaimed works, Art Spiegelman will be presenting his newest childrens project "JACK AND THE BOX."  The book is published by Toon Books, a company in which he serves as a Series Advisor. JACK JUST GOT A NEW TOY, and it’s full of surprises. Each time the box pops open, there’s a new and bigger surprise. Is it a silly toy, a scary toy...or something else entirely? With a limited vocabulary and unlimited imagination, Art Spiegelman applies his out-of-the-box thinking to a book that has all the surprise and bounce of a Jack-in-the-box. TOON BOOKS represents a whole new approach to books for emerging readers - a rethinking as radical as the first time Theodore Geisel put a hat on a cat. The event will feature a presentation, reading, signing, and more.
