Annie Mok
On Drawing Joyce

Tuesday, September 30 | 7:30 pm

Moderated by Calvin Reid, Comics Editor for Publishers Weekly Magazine

“Annie Mok is bursting with ideas…This little comic book is a beaut." - The Comics Journal

West Philadelphia-based cartoonist Annie Mok returns to the Irish Arts Center (last here with Adapting the Novel: the Graphic Canon in 2013) to share her comic Annie Mok Draws James Joyce and engage in a short conversation with Calvin Reid. Including adaptations of "Araby" from Dubliners, a dreamy take on A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, and a "making of" strip, Annie will discuss her original artwork, research process, and the benefits of, and limits to, adapting source material.

A Q&A and signing will follow the reading.
