What: We are delighted to partner with the Harris County Public Library (HCPL), during their Summer Authorama, to provide books for their event with Andrew Aydin, co-author and creator of the graphic memoir series MARCH. He will appear to discuss MARCH, books one, two and three. This event will take place on HCPL's Facebook Live stream.
When: Wednesday, August 5, 2020, 6:30pm
We work hard to bring events to our community for free, because connecting readers with authors is central to our mission. But these programs are not free for us to put on! If you’re interested in attending this event, we hope you’ll consider purchasing a copy of MARCH from our bookshop. Your support is critical to keeping us here and offering events like this, and we hope to do that for many years to come!
