Book Launch: Jillian Tamaki presents Boundless
In conversation with Emily Gould
Wine reception to follow
Jillian Tamaki, the award-winning, beloved cartoonist of This One Summer and Supermutant Magic Academy launches her newest title at Greenlight. Boundless, a collection of short stories, explores the virtual and IRL world of contemporary women with Tamaki’s signature surreal and wry lens. Boundless is at once fantastical and realist, playfully hinting at possible transcendence: from one’s culture, one’s relationship, oneself. Author Alexandra Kleeman says, “Jillian Tamaki's finely hewn tales read like transmissions from a parallel universe just as lonely as our own, but in a more beautifully felt, hilariously ephemeral way.” Tamaki discusses Boundless with author and publisher Emily Gould, accompanied by a visual presentation of her work. A wine reception follows to celebrate the book’s launch.
