Join us for a rare appearance by the sometimes-local, always jet-setting, ever award-winning, comic-journalist extraodrdinaire, Joe Sacco! Mr. Sacco will be presenting an informal slideshow lecture on his work, followed by a Q&A, as well as signing copies of his new book THE FIXER: A STORY FROM SARAJEVO (Drawn & Quarterly, 2003).
THE FIXER is a behind the scenes look at news gathering on the frontlines, and the relationship between war correspondents and the local "fixers" who trade in human tragedy for survival.
Joe Sacco is the critically acclaimed author of PALESTINE (Fantagraphics, 2001), SAFE AREA GORAZDE (Fantagraphics, 2000), and NOTES FROM A DEFEATIST (Fantagraphics, 2003). Born in Malta, raised in the United States, and currently residing in Portland, Mr. Sacco holds a degree in Journalism from University of Oregon.
This event is free and will begin at 7 Pm Thursday, 11/20/03. It will take place at Reading Frenzy (917 SW Oak Street, Portland, OR. 97205).
