Making Comics with Jarrett J. Krosoczka

Meet comics creator Jarrett J. Krosoczka at 3:30 PM on Thursday, October 20, at the Brookline Village Library in Hunneman Hall on our second floor.

Register here!

This visit is presented in partnership with the Massachusetts Independent Comics Expo (MICE). Make sure to visit MICE the weekend after this event, October 22-23, at the Boston University School of Visual Arts.

At this event, Jarrett J. Krosoczka will discuss how he got to be a cartoonist and break down how and why comics work. He will be doing live demos of drawing and will have time to answer questions.

Titles will be on sale courtesy of the Brookline Booksmith and there will be a signing following the event.

Masks encouraged.

Jarrett J. Krosoczka, known since boyhood as “JJK,” is the New York Times bestselling author/illustrator behind more than forty books for young readers, including his wildly popular Lunch Lady graphic novels, select volumes of the Star Wars™: Jedi Academy series, and Hey, Kiddo, which was a National Book Award Finalist. Krosoczka creates books with humor, heart, and deep respect for his young readers—qualities that have made his titles perennial favorites on the bookshelves of homes, libraries, and bookstores over the past twenty years.

This event is limited to 90 participants (including chaperones.) Please have at least one chaperone per two children.

This event is presented in partnership with the Massachusetts Independent Comics Expo (MICE) and generously sponsored by the Friends of the Brookline Library.
