The award-winning author and cartoonist behind the middle grade graphic novels Smile, Drama, and Sisters, Raina Telgemeier is back. In Ghosts, Telgemeier brings yet another thoughtful, adventurous, and captivating story of childhood to lifethis time through the escapades of two bi-racial sisters who move to a new town in Northern California inhabited by ghosts. But with one of the sisters battling cystic fibrosis and apparitions who are more than just spooks, what unfolds is far more than just a ghost story, weaving together topics like illness, death, heritage, and the power of family and friendship to enable us to do the impossible in a winning adventure. Join us as we celebrate the release of the fun and engaging new graphic novel at this reading and signing of Ghosts with Telgemeier just days after it comes out.
