Come meet Jerry Craft
author of the bestselling graphic novel, New Kid
Jerry will be stopping by our store for a *brief* signing on Sunday, August 11th, at 4:30. Come say hi, get your copy of New Kid signed specially for you and maybe even get to chat with Jerry for a minute or two.
If you haven't read New Kid yet, you're in for a huge treat. New Kid is one of the best graphic novels of the year--smart, funny, vividly drawn, with the same wonderful mix of heart and humor that you find in Raina Telgemeier's and Gene Luen Yang's work.
If you've never met Jerry Craft before, you're in for a double treat. He's... Well, just apply all those adjectives from above to him as well. Jerry's the author and illustrator who has worked on numerous picture books, graphic novels, and middle grade novels, including The Zero Degree Zombie Zone by Patrik Henry Bass. Jerry is the creator of Mama’s Boyz, an award-winning syndicated comic strip. He has won five African American Literary Awards, and he is a cofounder of the Schomburg Center’s Annual Black Comic Book Festival. He received his BFA from the School of Visual Arts and now lives in Connecticut.
Perfect for fans of Raina Telgemeier and Gene Luen Yang, New Kid is a timely, honest graphic novel about starting over at a new school where diversity is low and the struggle to fit in is real, from award-winning author-illustrator Jerry Craft.
