Thursday, 9/6 at 6:30PM, @wordupbooks presents "Stories I Would Tell A Million Times: A Show of Nonfiction Comics Narratives from Members of the Word Up Community", a new comics show of work from a recent Word Up Community Bookshop class taught by local teaching artist (and Word Up vounteer) Ellen Lindner. There will be lots of great art to look at, a reading at 7:30, and sales of zines by the artists on display! See you there, comix fans!
