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.
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.
