SUSCEPTIBLE Book Launch & Talk
with author Geneviève Castrée
Monday, February 18th, 2013
7:00pm @ The Beguiling, 601 Markham Street
Free to attend
The Beguiling is proud to present Susceptible, the important new graphic novel from Geneviève Castrée.
Susceptible is the story of Goglu, a daydreamer growing up in Quebec in the ’80s and ’90s with a single mother. From a skillful artist comes a moving, beautiful story about families, loss, and growing up. Whether she’s discussing nature versus nurture or the story of her birth, Castrée imbues her storytelling with a quiet power and a confidence in the strength of imagery.
As you may remember, this book launch was originally scheduled for November, but we’re happy to be say it’s been rescheduled and Genevieve will be coming to town to celebrate its release and discuss this new work.
We think this is one of the most important graphic novel releases of the season, from an enormously talented young Canadian cartoonist. Best of all, we’ve been told her presentation from the book is excellent, so we hope you’ll be able to make it out for this.
