D+Q Authors and Cartoonists to Tour This Fall!

Some of our favourite D+Q authors and cartoonists are touring this fall! 

Winnipeg: Tuesday October 22nd, 2013 Grant Park in the Atrium
Toronto:  November 13th, 2013 AGO

Upon its release in 2003, Louis Riel: A Comic-Strip Biography received both praise and criticism before winning two Harvey Awards. This expanded edition includes a new introduction highlighting the work's impact and success as Chester Brown reinvented the biography genre. 
Celebrating ten years since the release of his comic-strip biography, Louis Riel, Brown will be in Winnipeg for what would be Louis Riel's 169th birthday. He will also appear at the Art Gallery of Ontario where his original artwork will be displayed. 

Toronto: IOFA October 24th-November 3rd, 2013
Seth is back! His new volume, Palookaville 21 features not one but two autobiographical pieces before continuing the Clyde Fans serial in part three. Bonus: an exclusive comic-strip Seth has been keeping for almost a decade!

Seth will be attending this year's International Festival of Authors downtown Toronto at the Harbourfront Centre. The festival runs for 11 days with readings by the Governor General's Literary Award and Rogers Writer's Trust Fiction Prize finalists. Other participants include Margaret Atwood, Eric Walters, Joseph Boyden, Stephen King and many more!
