Susceptible (Drawn & Quarterly)
Cartoonist Geneviève Castrée will discuss and sign her highly anticipated debut graphic novel, Susceptible.
"With mesmerizing honesty Castrée resurrects the obscenely disorienting
turning points of a childhood, the ones that haunt a person for a
lifetime. After reading the last page I closed the book and wept a
little bit about its simple, perfect ending."
–Miranda July, author of It Chooses You and No One Belongs Here More Than You

devastating graphic novel debut by Genevieve Castrée about the heartbreaking loss of innocence when a child is forced to be the adult among grownups.
