Lucy Knisley will sign RELISH
on Saturday, May 18, from 1-3pm!
Chapel Hill Comics is proud to announce that as part of our 10th/35th Anniversary Festivities, we will host Lucy Knisley on Saturday, May 18, from 1pm until 3pm, when she will sign her new memoir, Relish!
We'll have copies of Relish, as well as her previous memoir, French Milk, and copies of the Adventure Time comics for which she has provided stories! Here is our Facebook page for the event if you want to RSVP or invite your friends!
Lucy Knisley loves food. The daughter of a chef and a gourmet, this talented young cartoonist comes by her obsession honestly. In her forthright, thoughtful, and funny memoir, Lucy traces key episodes in her life thus far, framed by what she was eating at the time and lessons learned about food, cooking, and life.
Each chapter is bookended with an illustrated recipe-many of them treasured family dishes, and a few of them Lucy's original inventions. In this book, you'll learn how to cook everything from chai to chicken. A welcome read for anyone who ever felt more passion for a sandwich than is strictly speaking proper, Relish is a graphic novel for our time: it invites the reader to celebrate food as a connection to our bodies and a connection to the earth, rather than an enemy, a compulsion, or a consumer product.

Lucy Knisley was born in New York City, raised in Rhinebeck, NY, and educated in Chicago. She has come home to roost in a tiny apartment in Manhattan, where she can be closer to her mom's cooking. Her comics about life, food, travel and her adventures have gained her a devoted audience on the Internet, and she is now doing food comics for the magazine Saveur, who just sent her to Africa. Lucy's first book, French Milk, is a travelogue about a trip to Paris. Relish is her most recent work.
|SUNDAY, 2-3:30pm: DRAMA BOOK CLUB!
Yay! This Sunday, May 19, from 2pm to 3:30pm, is our next Chapel Hill Comics Book Club Meeting!
We'll be discussing Raina Telgemeier's Drama, which is suitable for readers young and old! Here are some reviews, taken from Raina's website:
★ The author follows up her award-winning graphic novel Smile with another dead-on look at the confusing world of middle school, sweetly capturing all the drama swirling around the school production. . . . Should be eagerly devoured by her many fans.
-Publishers Weekly, starred review
★ With the clear, stylish art, the strongly appealing characters and just the right pinch of drama, this book will undoubtedly make readers stand up and cheer. Brava!
-Kirkus, starred review
★ In this realistic and sympathetic story, feelings and thoughts leap off the page, revealing Telgemeier's keen eye for young teen life.
-Booklist, starred review
★ An entertaining and enlightening read.
-School Library Journal, starred review
Telgemeier draws up-by-their-book-bags characters who value hard work and seize a chance that has nothing to do with looks or even with love. . . . The better Telgemeier's books sell, the less hand-wringing to do over the next generation. If this is what the youth of America are into, the kids are all right.
-New York Times Book Review
Hilarious. . . . Telgemeier's graphic artist skills make this novel a pleasure to read and re-read.
Raina Telgemeier delivers a star turn with her graphic novel follow-up to Smile, with this tale of Callie and her middle-grade drama (double entendre intended). Encore!
Please try to make it out for this edition of Chapel Hill Comics Book Club!
Thanks for reading, and we hope to see you soon!
