On Tuesday, May 21st at 7:15pm, join The Graphic Canon contributors Zak Smith, Sharon Rudahl, Milton Knight, and Frank M. Hansen in a discussion moderated by editor Russ Kick at the Los Angeles Central Library.
The classic canon of Western civilization meets the artists and illustrators who have remade reading in the last years of the twentieth century and the first decade of the twenty-first century in Russ Kick’s magisterial, three-volume, full-color Graphic Canon. In the first anthology of its kind in comics history, Russ Kick presents some of the artists and illustrators, both known and unknown, who have begun to redefine literature for a new century. Among these artists are Zak Smith (Gravity’s Rainbow by Thomas Pynchon), Sharon Rudahl (Three Tang poems: Wang Han, Cui Hu, and Li Bai), Milton Knight (“Poker!” by Zora Neale Hurston), and Frank M. Hansen (”If-” by Rudyard Kipling).
Join these amazing artists alongside Russ Kick in a panel discussion and presentation about art, literature, and what happened when these two worlds collide.

March 13, 2012"A young mezzo-soprano whose voice is darkly complex and mysteriously soulful and who adds intense emphasis to every word of text sang six songs by the Spanish composer Joaquin Rodrigo on Thursday night at the AT&T Center Theatre. In one, a bee bites the lip of a sleeping shepherdess as if it were a rose, to the envy of a shy lover."
