Join Chicagoan Lucy Knisley to celebrate the release of FRENCH MILK. She will present and discuss some of her comic work and also sign copies of her book.
With the sights and smells of Paris floating off the pages, FRENCH MILK is a witty graphic travelogue that documents six weeks that the 23 year old author and her mother spent living together in Paris. Through drawings, photographs and musings, Lucy takes readers on a journey that begins in Chicago and continues through Parisian sites both on and off the beaten path – from flea markets and comic shops to cemeteries, museums and cafes. A passionate foodie, Lucy’s story is infused with savory illustrations and descriptions of the authentic Parisian food she quickly grew to love… croissants, cornichons, chocolate mousse, and of course, that fabulous French Milk!
Lucy is a recent graduate of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She currently attends the prestigious graduate program at The Center for Cartoon Studies and is the winner of The Center’s Diamond in the Rough Scholarship.
