Gina Gagliano writes: “With the move of the NYRSF Readings to the Soho Gallery for Digital Art, we’re introducing the (occasional) graphic novel reading, as now we have the opportunity to see the reading as well as hear it – essential for science fiction/fantasy works in the comics form.”  

To accommodate this, we will take advantage of the large screen in the downstairs section of the gallery as our writer/artists perform the vocals for the works being displayed.  And what a lineup Gina has assembled!

Molly Crabapple, artist, comics creator and entrepreneur, has been called "a downtown phenomenon" by The New York Times and "THE artist of our time" by comedian Margaret Cho. Using her hyper-detailed Victorian pen for graphic novels, giant nightclub murals, and for clients like DC Comics, Marvel Comics, SXSW, Red Bull and the Wall Street Journal, Molly is also the founder of Dr. Sketchy's Anti-Art School - an alt.drawing salon with branches in 120 cities from Akron to Zagreb - which Roger Ebert recently called "inspired." Molly has spoken at the Museum of Modern Art, The Brooklyn Museum, and in museums and universities from Helsinki to Sao Paulo.  Her Web site is at http://mollycrabapple.com

Dave Roman has done comics about the X-Men and Avatar: The Last Airbender, as well as contributing to the Flight anthologies and editing the video game comics anthology Lifemeter.  The NY Times bestseller is also the author of Agnes Quill: An Anthology of Mystery.  After working as the comics editor for Nickelodeon Magazine for ten years, his first solo project, Astronaut Academy, came out this June from First Second Books.  The Comics Waiting Room says of it, “There will not be a better all-ages graphic novel published this year than Astronaut Academy. Period.”  Dave maintains a blog at http://yaytime.com

Gina Gagliano is the Marketing Coordinator at First Second Books, Macmillan’s dedicated graphic novel imprint.

The New York Review of Science Fiction Reading Series provides performances from some of the best writers in science fiction, fantasy, speculative fiction, etc.  The series usually takes place the first Tuesday of every month, but maintains flexibility in time and place, so be sure to stay in touch through the mailing list and the Web.
After the event, please join us as we treat our performers and curator for dinner and drinks at Milady’s nearby. 

Jim Freund is Producer and Executive Curator of The New York Review of Science Fiction Readings.  He has been involved in producing radio programs of and about literary sf/f since 1967.  His long-running live radio program, “Hour of the Wolf,” broadcasts and streams every Wednesday night/Thursday morning from 1:30-3:00 AM.  (New time slot.)  Programs are available by stream for 2 weeks after broadcast.  (Check http://hourwolf.com or follow @JimFreund for details.)

The SoHo Gallery for Digital Art  (http://sohodigart.com)  is dedicated to re-establishing SoHo as an international center for the development of new artistic forms, concepts and ideas.  A screens-instead-of-canvases approach allows a wide selection of art from around the world which would otherwise never make it to the City.  The SGDA is available for private gatherings and events of all kinds.  For bookings call (800) 420-5590 or visit http://sohogallerynyc.com
