Rick Louis and Lara Antal present Ronan and the Endless Sea of Stars 
In conversation with Charlotte Greenbaum 

Greenlight welcomes writer Rick Louis and illustrator Lara Antal as they present their new collaboration, Ronan and the Endless Sea of Stars. In this profoundly moving graphic novel memoir, Louis recounts his unique and wrenching journey caring for a child with a terminal diagnosis; when his infant son Ronan is diagnosed with Tay-Sachs, he and his partner Emily are faced with the practical and emotional hurdles of parenting and loving their son—despite the shadow of inevitable loss. Antal's beautiful and imaginative drawings depict the spaces Ronan occupies before, during, and after his life, using flights of fancy and imagination to express the bizarre, heartbreaking, and sometimes even silly reality of human beings suddenly trapped in an impossible situation. Editor Charlotte Greenbaum will moderate the conversation between Louis and Antal. Join us on Flatbush Ave for a story of warmth and of heartbreak—about finding joy in life, no matter how long or short that life might be.
