This month the Graphic Novel Book Club will read and discuss A Fire Story by Brian Fies. Early on the morning of Monday, October 9, 2017, wildfires burned through Northern California, killing 44 and destroying 6,200 homes. One of those homes belonged to author and illustrator Brian Fies and his family. In the days that followed, Fies hastily pulled together a firsthand account of his experience in a twenty-page online comic, entitled A Fire Story. Less than a year after the fire, Brian Fies expanded his webcomic into a full-length graphic novel, including environmental insight and the stories of others affected by the disaster.
Books will be available to pick up at the Central Library circulation desk. This book group discussion will be held via Google Meetings; link to the discussion will be emailed the day before meeting. Questions? Email Dave at firstname.lastname@example.org.
