This weekend Sari & I will be in Miami for the Miami Book Fair International! Besides enjoying the warm weather, partying by the water, and hopefully meeting A.D. readers, I will be taking part in two panels on Saturday, November 14. And Sari will be joining me for one! To whit:
11:30 a.m., Centre Gallery, Rm. 1365 (Bldg. 1)
A Conversation with Dan Goldman (08: A Graphic Diary of the Campaign Trail), Josh Neufeld (A.D. After the Deluge) and Joshua Dysart (Unknown Soldier). We’ll be presenting our work, conducting a group Q&A, and signing books.
2:00–3:00 p.m., Kids’ Comic-Con (on NE 1st Ave., in front of Bldg. 1)
How to Create Your Own Mini-Comic in 45 Minutes or Less
Have you ever wanted to create your own comic? Or have you ever been faced with nothing to do on a rainy day (although we realize that doesn’t happen very much in Miami)? Come to this workshop and discover how easy and fun it is to make your very own self-published comic book! (Taught by: Josh Neufeld, author and illustrator of the critically acclaimed graphic novel A.D.: New Orleans After the Deluge; Sari Wilson, a creative writing educator with New York City’s Teachers and Writers Collaborative; and Janna Morishima, director of the Kids Group at Diamond Book Distributors).
The book fair is being held at the Wolfson campus of Miami Dade College, around the intersection of NE 1st Ave & NE 5th St. in Miami. See you there!
