Fans of comics, literature and culture will get some food for thought when award-winning authors Manuel Gonzales (The Miniature Wife and Other Stories), Yona Harvey (Black Panther: World of Wakanda) and Gary Jackson (Missing You, Metropolis) come together at D.C.'s Folger Theatre to explore the evolving influence that comic books have on writers. They'll read from their work, then launch into a post-reading discussion addressing everything from superpowers to identity to the writing process itself. And what's a comic-centric event without artwork? Using handwritten poems and passages as inspiration, the artists of micro-press Ink Brick will create a one-of-a-kind We Wear the Masks comic book broadside. This event is sponsored by the Folger Poetry Series and the PEN/Faulkner Fiction Series.
