Raina Telgemeier, author of the bestselling graphic memoirs Smile (2010) and Sisters(2014), shares her childhood struggle with anxiety in a new book: Guts! Set in her elementary school years, Guts opens as young Raina wakes up one night with a terrible upset stomach. It soon becomes clear that Raina’s tummy trouble isn’t going away...and it coincides with her worries about food, school, and changing friendships.
Raina once again brings us a thoughtful, charming, and funny true story about growing up and gathering the courage to face–and conquer–her fears. At this all-ages Brooklyn event for Guts, Raina discusses her book onstage with fellow cartoonist Jerry Craft, author of the acclaimed graphic novel New Kid.
Admission includes a copy of Guts.
