KATE BEATON discusses and signs her comics collection HARK! A VAGRANT

Kate Beaton Self Portrait

 

Hark! A Vagrant (Drawn & Quarterly)

New Yorker cartoonist Kate Beaton will discuss and sign her collection of comic strips, Hark! A Vagrant. This hilarious collection takes readers on a romp through history and literature, with comic strips about famous authors, their characters, and political and historical figures. Whether she's writing about Nikola Tesla, Napoleon, or Nancy Drew, Beaton brings a refined sense of the absurd to every situation.

"[Beaton's] neat linework and terrific grasp of simple caricature and facial expression sells a lot of the best strips, including Sasaki Kojiro meeting an undignified end, Jane Austen and Nikola Tesla being pestered by their fans, and Lord Byron muttering 'Bitches, man' to a grieving Percy Bysshe Sellley. A-" --The Onion, The A.V. Club

"Simply put, this is the most well-drawn, funniest comic that I've read in a while." --Adrienne So, Wired

Kate Beaton grew up in Nova Scotia, Canada, where she earned a bachelor's degree in history and anthropology at Mount Allison University. Her comics have appeared in the New Yorker, Harpers, The National Post, and The Best American Comics anthology. Her website, www.harkavagrant.com, attracts over 500,000 unique monthly visitors.
