Interview: Raina Telgemeier, author of Drama

Sep 7, 2012

One of the most moving and beloved graphic novels (graphic memoir, actually) to come out in the past few years was Raina Telgemeier’s Smile, the story of growing up, losing and making friends, and discovering one’s authentic identity…all because of a little (well, a lot of) orthodontia. It created such a buzz, and garnered such a following, that everyone was curious to see what Telgemeier’s next move would be in the graphic publishing world.

Interview: Jimmy Gownley, author of Her Permanent Record

Aug 31, 2012

Eleven years after his much beloved Amelia Rules! series began, artist and writer Jimmy Gownley is releasing the very final Amelia Louise McBride adventure, Her Permanent Record. In it, the 11-year-old heroine (smart as a whip and cantankerous in a way that evokes the spirit of the greatest YA heroines of literature) boards a bus to go off in search of her missing Aunt Tanner, who has been scandalized by an ex-boyfriend’s tell-all book. We caught up with Gownley to discuss the ending of an era…and how he’s beginning a new one. Oh, and he also gives you major clues on two hidden treats you should be on the lookout for when you read Her Permanent Record. ---John Hogan
