ACT-I-VATE founder and comic artist Dean Haspiel will speak at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York tonight:
Meanwhile, Nick Bertozzi will appear at McNally Robinson at 7 p.m.:
Nick Bertozzi, author of The Salon ( St. Martin ’s Press)
Cartoonist Nick Bertozzi takes on the Lost Generation in this unique historical graphic novel of art, absinthe and murder. The boisterous and decadent story centers around Gertrude Stein, Satie, Appolinaire, Braque, and the inimitable Picasso, whose vibrant salon is disturbed by a series of murders of minor modernist painters that turn out to have a sinister supernatural source. Bertozzi will stage a dramatic reading with slides from the book for a unique experience of his fantastical 1920s Paris.
