Graphic Lives Lived
Michael Kupperman presents All the Answers
With readings by Gabrielle Bell, Ron Rege, and Lauren Weinstein
Eisner Award-winning writer and artist Michael Kupperman presents All the Answers, his new graphic memoir – selected by Publishers Weekly as one of the most anticipated books of the season – with readings by friends and fellow graphic novelists! All the Answers traces the life of Kupperman’s father -- the once-world-famous Joel Kupperman, Quiz Kid -- from a World War II-era childhood spent in the public eye to a post-war adulthood in recluse. With wit and heart, Kupperman presents a fascinating account of mid-century radio and early television history, the pro-Jewish propaganda entertainment used to counteract anti-Semitism, and the early age of modern celebrity culture. Kupperman presents his new book, with readings by his fellow comic artists Gabrielle Bell, author of the acclaimed Everything Is Flammable, Ron Rege, author of The Cartoon Utopia and other works, and Lauren Weinstein, author of Girl Stories and Goddess of War. A signing and Q&A follow the presentation.
