Comics at the Festival of Authors

A few years ago, I interviewed Seth and Tony Millionaire at one of Toronto’s first International Festival of Authors to feature comic creators. There is one week left in the 2009 edition and courtesy of The Beguiling, here is the comics and graphic novels lineup for the remainder of the festival:

Lynn Johnston reads Farley Follows His Nose
Tuesday October 27th, 10:30am
The creator of the popular and recently-retired comic strip For Better Or Worse reads her new children’s book that features one of the beloved characters from the book.

Denise Mina reads Still Midnight
Tuesday October 27th, 1pm
Denise Mina penned three story arcs of Hellblazer. She’ll be reading from her new work, and participating in a panel discussion about Scottish writers.

Ian Rankin reads The Complaints
Wednesday October 28th, 8pm
Ian Rankin, author of the new graphic novel Dark Entries: Hellblazer in the Vertigo Crime line will be reading from his new prose work.

Kean Soo reads Jellaby: Monster In The City
Thursday October 29th, 10:30am
The creator of Jellaby and co-editor of the Image anthology Flight reads from his new graphic novel.

R.O. Blechman reads Talking Lines and Seth reads George Sprott (1894-1975)
Saturday October 31st, 12:00pm

New Yorker cartoonist R.O. Blechman reads from his new D&Q-published book Talking Lines, and Seth will read from his new graphic novel George Sprott, which I recently picked up. Such a lovely book to look at. The readings will be followed by a joint interview of both cartoonists by The Walrus’ Sean Rogers. Oliver Ho writes this fantastic essay on Seth at PopMatter.
