Toronto and Glasgow Calling!
Posted: July 21, 2012
So ‘Where’s Paul?”, you may well ask! I am off again galavanting round the globe, first off to Toronto for the Comics & Medicine: Navigating the Margins Conference, where I am giving the opening address on the current state of this fruitful and growing genre of graphic narratives. I am also looking forward to interviewing Joyce Farmer about her life and work, and in particular her tender graphic novel Special Exits about the last years of her father and stepmother. I will also be signing copies of my books with Joyce and another guest of the conference, Joyce Brabner, and having an informal conversation from 6.30pm at The Central, 603 Markham Street, next to The Beguiling, surely one of the best, and best-stocked, comics emporia on the planet, on Monday evening, July 23rd.
My other stop will be Glasgow where I am giving a free but ticketed talk, Who Are The Geniuses Who Transformed Comics Forever?, related to 1001 Comics You Must Read Before You DIe and tying in with Sarnath Banerjee’s current exhibition at the Centre for Contemporary Art, 350 Sauchiehall Street Glasgow, G2 3JD, on Saturday June 28th from 3pm. You can book via their site or by phoning 0141 352 4900. Do hope some of you can get along to this.
