MARCH 10: JAIME HERNANDEZ “IS THIS HOW YOU SEE ME?” LAUNCH AT THE BEGUILING!

On Sunday, March 10 at 4PM we’re beyond thrilled to welcome comics legend JAIME HERNANDEZ to our new store to celebrate the release of IS THIS HOW YOU SEE ME? from Fantagraphics!
 
Starting at 4 Jaime will be in conversation with Jane van Koerverden from CBC. After the discussion there’ll be a chance to ask questions and then get your books signed!!!
 
Jaime is the co-creator with his brothers Gilbert & Mario of the legendary LOVE & ROCKETS, one of the titles that has defined the purpose and voice of our shop since the earliest days, so it obviously means a lot to us to welcome Jaime to The Beguiling’s new location!
If for some reason you have never read any of Jaime’s groundbreaking work you still have time to come to the shop and get started and see for yourself what the big deal is! Or: maybe you have, but you’ve fallen behind lately? Well, now you have time to discover that the stories collected in THE LOVE BUNGLERS (also available in Angels & Magpies) and IS THIS HOW YOU SEE ME? Represent not only some of the best comics of recent years, but also some of the finest of Hernandez’s career!
 
Don’t miss this rare chance to meet one of the greatest living cartoonists! We’ll see you there!

TICKET GIVEAWAY: REIMAGINING MYTHS & LEGENDS WITH AUTHOR MARLON JAMES MARCH 03!

What better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day than winning some tickets to an amazing event for your sweetheart?!
Curious Minds Weekend is coming up this March 1- 3 and
Man Booker Prize winner MARLON JAMES will be there in support of his new novel Black Leopard, Red Wolf!

Originally from Jamaica and now based in the United States, Marlon James is one of the world’s most electrifying authors. In 2015, he won the prestigious Man Booker Prize for A Brief History of Seven Killings. Now he returns with Black Leopard, Red Wolf, the stunning first installment of his Dark Star trilogy that is being hailed as an “African Game of Thrones.” At this Canadian debut, James will introduce Toronto readers to the unforgettable story of Tracker, a mercenary scouring the ancient cities of Africa on a hunt for a missing child. As he unveils this epic fictional universe, James will discuss how he created a new kind of contemporary mythology—a work of prodigious imagination that is quickly becoming the year’s most talked-about novel.

“A fantasy world as well-realized as anything Tolkien made.” – Neil Gaiman
