Events this Week

in

Tonight I will be attending Straight out of Angoulême, Words without Borders' event with Charles Burberian and Philippe Dupuy, creators of the French Monsieur Jean comics (some of which have recently been collected in the book Get A Life which I highly recommend). These two guys have been kind of heroes of mine since I first read there work years ago in the anthology Drawn and Quarterly, and my one attempt at online comics (which shall go unnamed) openly aped their style.

Tomorrow, I'll be at the National Book Critics Circle Awards ceremony, an award which really needs a nickname. The Crities? The Nats? The Natties?
