ANNOUNCING BROOKLYN BOOK FESTIVAL COMICS PANELS AND BOOKEND EVENTS!

There are lotsa good things in here, so let me just pull out two relevant to those of you who are John Porcellino fans: one is a panel during the BKBF festivities, and the other is a Bookend event, hosted by Desert Island and Spectacle Theatre!

BROOKLYN HISTORICAL SOCIETY (128 Pierrepont St.)

2:00 P.M. Losing and Finding Yourself: Comics of Heartbreak and Healing. Three award-winning artists offer their stories of traveling the world, through illness, anxiety, love, family, loss, and survival. Gabrielle Bell (Truth is Fragmentary), John Porcellino (Hospital Suite), and Anya Ulinich (Lena Finkle’s Magic Barrel). Moderated byBill Kartalopoulos, ed., Best American Comics.Featuring screen projection.

SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 21

ROOT HOG OR DIE, Documentary Film Screening. The film Root Hog or Die follows the life of John Porcellino, who has self-published King-Cat Comics and Stories for 25 years. Equal parts Thoreau and Hüsker Dü, his work showcases the moments-between-moments that make up the majority of our lives, but which many fail to notice. Q&A with the artist follows the screening, with a book signing for his new graphic novel, The Hospital Suite.

Location: Spectacle Theater, 124 S. 3rd St.

Time: 8:00 PM

Price: $5

About THE HOSPITAL SUITE

"[In The Hospital Suite, Porcellino’s] simple, black lines and bare-bones drawings have a powerful economy that present the story cleanly, without flourish, detailing a frightening and inescapable spiral into dysfunction without hyperbole. The result is a clear-eyed, penetrating book about the helplessness of illness which should bring Porcellino a wider audience beyond his cult following.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review

Yesss, check out John P’s full tour poster (though a few dates are still pending!) and make sure to find time to check in with him at the Brooklyn Book Festival on Sunday September 21st!
