David Small's graphic novel follow0up to the award-winning and critically acclaimed book Stitches is already being lauded as a masterpiece. Home After Dark: A Novel is the story of 13-year-old Russell's struggle with not only making new friends but his own sexuality. The mostly wordless story moves like the best film noir with both small- and large-screen worthy art. Readers will find it difficult not to get swept up in this heartbreaking story of a young, confused boy in the 1950's struggling to survive in a broken home.
Small will discuss the story behind this incredible tale, answer questions, and sign books. Michigan News Agency will sell books for signing. This event is free and open to the public.
