Joe Sacco will be our guest. He has a new book out!
A sweeping, original investigation of a forgotten crime in the most tormented of places, FOOTNOTES IN GAZA (Metropolitan Books/December 22, 2009), the highly anticipated new work by award-winning graphic novelist Joe Sacco, recounts fifty years of history across hundreds of pages of absorbing, deftly drawn panels. Sacco, one of the world's foremost cartoonists, is widely hailed as the creator of war-reportage comics. His last work, Safe Area Gorazde, won the Eisner Award and was named a New York Times Notable Book and Time magazine's best comic book of 2000; his much lauded Palestine received the American Book Award.
