Event Preview: Raina Telgemeier

Join us at 7:00 p.m. on March 5, 2013, at St. Louis Public Library--Central when middle grade graphic novelist Raina Telgemeier will speak about her work.

Raina's semi-autobiographical Smile was the recipient of the Will Eisner Award for Best Publication for Teens.  She has followed it up with Drama, an account of working backstage on a middle school musical that touches on issues of friendship and budding sexual orientation.  Her other work includes books for the Babysitters Club graphic novels and X-Men Misfits series.

Copies of Raina's books will be available for purchase and signing.  If you can't make it to the event, call Left Bank Books at 314-367-6731, ext. 1, to order signed personalized copies.
