The Lillian H. Smith Auditorium, 239 College St., in association with The Friends of The Merril Collection
FREE


The Beguiling is proud to present a special event, celebrating the release of Ray Fawkes‘ new graphic novel THE PEOPLE INSIDE! In much the same vein as Fawkes‘ amazing ONE SOULTHE PEOPLE INSIDE tells the story of 24 different people in a way that only the medium of comics can! Compelling, intertwining narratives and formalist experimentation meld to create a graphic novel that absolutely shouldn’t be missed.

Joining author Ray Fawkes will be acclaimed writer and graphic novelist Jeff Lemire (Trillium, Essex County), who will interview his friend and colleague Fawkes on this new graphic novel.

Presented by The Beguiling, with thanks to The Friends of The Merril Collection and Oni Press.
