Yes, it’s true — next weekend I will be flown out as a guest of this year’s Miami International Book Fair to take part in their Comix Galaxy programming, presenting THE BIG KAHN (despite the website calling it ‘Great Kahn’) alongside Eisner-nominated cartoonist Brian Fies on Sunday, November 15th at 1:30PM and then signing books following our talk. I will also be teaching an exclusive minicomics class at Miami-Dade College on Friday, November 13th, and will be walking around the Fair saying hello to friends and checking out the amazing lineup of authors.
The fair takes place November 8-15, with the street fair starting on the 13th. There’s a pretty impressive list of participants including Al Gore, Iggy Pop, Rich Cohen (I’m gonna try and talk Jew gangsters with him!), Jonathan Lethem, John Hodgman and graphic novelists like Josh Neufeld, Dan Goldman, Josh Dysart, Carol Tyler, James Sturm, Jimmy Gownley, Bob Sikoryak, David Small and more. If you’re in the area, please come by and check it out.
