A Night of Cartoonists Not to Be Missed, Tomorrow at Quimby's

Brace yourself as Quimby's Bookstore, 1854 W. North Ave., hosts a Night of Cartoonists, tomorrow, Thursday, March 26 at 7pm. The night is stacked with so much talent, their windows might burst.* Reading and discussing work will be three cartoonists: Nicole J. Georges, Keiler Roberts and Gina Wynbrandt.


(Self illustrations of each artist: Georges, Wynbrandt, and Roberts).

Nicole J. Georges, on tour from Portland, will be reading from her book, Calling Dr. Laura and discuss the process of making it. She'll also discuss her senior citizen zine project, Tell It Like It Tiz.

Keiler Roberts, local artist and teacher, is the author of Ignatz award nominated comic Powdered Milk. She'll hopefully regale the audience with hilarious tales that include her family, her daughter Xia, and her dog Crooky.

Gina Wynbrandt, local comics artist, will share some of the funniest comics being created today. Her love of pop culture will undoubtedly come up in the form of Justin Beiber, the internet, teen magazines (think '90s rags like Tiger Beat), or all three at once.

Get to Quimby's early to get a seat. Comics and zines by this fab lady dais will be available for sale.

*The windows won't actually burst. We hope.
