Each month we host a Graphic Novel Book Club meeting, open to all, during which we hang out and informally discuss a featured graphic novel. Our pick for this June is Carnet de Voyage by Craig Thompson. We will meet at La Petite Librairie Drawn & Quarterly (176 Rue Bernard O.) on Wednesday, June 13th at 7 p.m. The discussion will be hosted by Librairie Drawn & Quarterly staff member Chantal Houtteman. Join us for refreshments and collective insights!

Riding the international success of Blankets, Craig Thompson sets out on a tour across Europe and Morocco, promoting the various European editions of his book and beginning research for his next graphic novel Habibi. Carnet de Voyage is a gorgeous sketchbook diary of Craig's travels as he finds intellectual and spiritual stimulation amidst the day-to-day work of being an author. From wandering around Paris and Barcelona between events, to navigating markets in Fez and fleeing tourist traps in Marrakesh, we see glimpses of each place, rendered in Thompson’s exquisite ink line.
Carnet de Voyage is a casual yet intimate portrait of a celebrated cartoonist at a moment between works–surprisingly open and candid in his observations and revelations.
