Graphic Novel Book Club: Is This How You See Me?
28 November 2022
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 JUNE is Is This How You See Me? by Jaime Hernandez. We will meet at La Petite Librairie Drawn & Quarterly (176 Rue Bernard Ouest) on Tuesday April 30th at 7 p.m. The discussion will be hosted by Senior D&Q editor, Tracy Hurren. Join us for refreshments and collective insights!
In Love and Rockets, Jaime Hernandez has followed the lives of his queer, Chicano cast of characters for over 30 years of romance, heartbreak, and the self-awareness that comes with age. Is This How You See Me? hones in on Jaime’s two most beloved characters, Maggie and Hopey, flashing backward and forward in time to reveal how the passage of time has molded these young LA punks into complex, middle-aged women. An intimate look at how people change and drift apart, yet remain deeply affected by their formative years, Is This How You See Me? brings Hernandez’s L&R series full circle.
***We are offering a 20% discount on IS THIS HOW YOU SEE ME? from now until the meeting date!***
Librairie Drawn & Quarterly recognizes that our events and bookstores are located on the unceded territory of the Kanien’kehá:ka. Many of us refer to Montreal as our home, but it is named Tiohtiá:ke. This has always been a gathering place for many First Nations and continues to be home to a diverse population of Indigenous peoples. It is important to think about how each and every one of us has arrived here. We are grateful that creating and sharing stories has been a part of this land for thousands of years and we urge you to seek out a story that is different from your own.
