Sacco heads to Minneapolis


After kicking off the release of Palestine: The Special Edition here in Seattle this weekend, Joe Sacco will be headed to Minneapolis in mid-November for his only other public event of the year. Our pals at Rain Taxi sponsor the Twin Cities Book Festival every year and this year are bringing Sacco along with several other writers.

Celebrated cartoonist JOE SACCO visits Minneapolis for a special presentation co-hosted by Rain Taxi Review of Books and the Walker Art Center. Appearing in conjunction with the Walker exhibition Brave New Worlds, Sacco will offer a visual tour of his acclaimed approach to comics journalism, in which he combines the techniques of eyewitness reportage with the medium of graphic storytelling to explore complex, emotionally weighted situations in some of the most conflicted and war-torn regions of the globe.
