Raina Telgemeier, award-winning cartoonist of the bestselling graphic novels Smile, Sisters, and Drama, is coming to Winnipeg on September 18!

Martin's Baby-sitters Club series, and Raina has also contributed short stories to many anthologies. Raina's accolades include an Eisner Award, a Boston Globe-Horn Book Honor, a Stonewall Honor, and many Best Of and Notable lists.

As the time of year when ghosts reunite with their loved ones approaches, Cat must figure out how to put aside her fears for her sister's sake, and her own.

Join us for An Afternoon with Raina Telgemeier, Sunday September 18, 12 noon at the Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre John Hirsch Mainstage, 174 Market Avenue. Tickets are $5.00 and available in person at McNally Robinson Booksellers or by calling 204-475-0483.
