Aya author in NYC

Well, it seems that Marguerite Abouet is making a rare appearance here in North America . She's speaking tonight with Sandman author Neil Gaiman on a panel moderated by Sean Wilsey at the PEN festival in New York City. The discussion starts at 6pm at 37 Arts, 450 West 37th St. It is a ticketed event ($15/$10 PEN Members). The authors will be discussing "truth, imagination, and all things graphic." I'd personally like to see this because I think it's an oddly appropriate grouping of authors and the discussion is likely to focus more on the formal aspects of Marguerite's work such as recasting small town African living as a Hollywood-style evening soap opera.

Also, on Friday, Marguerite will be appearing on the "Words Without Borders: Every Day in Africa" panel. I'll provide more info on that one tomorrow.
