We Ate Wonder Bread by Nicole Hollander
Author Event: We Ate Wonder Bread by Nicole Hollander!
Friday, May 18th @ 6:30pm
When an honest-to-goodness icon of Chicago's literary scene releases something new, it's cause for celebration...so we couldn't be happier to host renowned cartoonist Nicole Hollander in support of her new book, We Ate Wonder Bread!
This graphic memoir is both a portrait of Hollander's girlhood and a nostalgic look at the Chicago neighborhood of her youth (it's also really funny).
Please join us on Friday, May 18th to hear Nicole read from her book, answer questions, and, of course, sign copies!
This is veteran cartoonist Hollander's first long-form work; her coming-of-age story, starring the gangsters, the glamorous, the bed bugs, the (enviable) Catholic girls, the police, the jukebox, the fortune teller, and the blue Hudson--the family car, always at the ready for frequent drives into better neighborhoods. Not only does this illustrated memoir give insight into how Hollander developed her style and wit, it's a chronicle of a Chicago community that has since disappeared into an expressway.
