MAR 30: HIROMI GOTO + ANN XU “SHADOW LIFE” VIRTUAL LAUNCH

Tuesday March 30th at 8PM EST we are very excited to celebrate the launch of award-winning Canadian writer and poet Hiromi Goto’s Shadow Life, a graphic novel illustrated by Ann Xu. The event will be broadcast virtually over Crowdcast.

The book follows Kumiko, a tenacious 76-year-old woman who refuses to while away her remaining years in an old folks’ home and submit to death – even as death comes knocking. It’s a brilliant, heart-rending, beautiful piece that defies stereotypes about age, gender, sexuality, and ethnicity, and celebrates the importance of families both born and chosen.

This book is shaping up to be a favorite of the year! Hiromi Goto and Ann Xu will be present for a reading and discussion moderated by Loyalty Bookshop’s Christine Bollow.

About Heaven No Hell:

Heaven No Hell collects DeForge’s best work yet. His ability to dig into a subject and break it down with beautiful drawings and sharp writing makes him one of the finest short story writers of the past decade, in comics or beyond. Heaven No Hell is always funny, sometimes sad, and continuously innovative in its deconstruction of society.
