EMMA STEINKELLNER reads from her debut graphic novel THE OKAY WITCH with BARBRA DILLON

The Okay Witch (Aladdin)

Sabrina the Teenage Witch meets Roller Girl in this debut graphic novel by Eisner-nominated illustrator Emma Steinkellner. 

Magic is harder than it looks.

Thirteen-year-old Moth Hush loves all things witchy. But she’s about to discover that witches aren’t just the stuff of movies, books, and spooky stories. When some eighth-grade bullies try to ruin her Halloween, something really strange happens. It turns out that Founder’s Bluff, Massachusetts, has a centuries-old history of witch drama. And, surprise: Moth’s family is at the center of it all! When Moth’s new powers show up, things get totally out-of-control. She meets a talking cat, falls into an enchanted diary, and unlocks a hidden witch world. With that revelation, Moth’s adventure truly begins – an adventure that spans centuries, generations, and even worlds – as she unravels the legacy at the heart of her life.

Praise for The Okay Witch:

"Emma Steinkellner is a compelling new cartoonist who I fully expect to take over the comics world before too long! The Okay Witch is a layered exploration of family and history that springs to life in lively, expressive art. A story clearly made with a lot of love and a little bit of magic."--Chad Sell, creator of Cardboard Kingdom
