Craig Thompson @ The Skirball Cultural Center

We are excited to announce that we will be working with the Skirball Cultural Center for their upcoming Craig Thompson reading.

On Thursday, May 10th at 8pm, Craig will be at the Skirball discussing his latest work, the gorgeous Habibi. After the discussion, there will be a Q&A and a book signing.

You can go here for more details. The event is FREE (really!), but advance reservations are recommended.
