Join us in welcoming Tillie Walden for the release of her graphic novel Spinning from :01 First Second. Original art by Tillie will be on display, as well as a Q&A and book signing.
Figure skating was Tillie Walden’s life. She woke before dawn for morning lessons, went straight to group practice after school, and spent weekends competing in glitter and tights. It was a central piece of her identity, her safe haven from the stress of school, bullies, and family. But as Tillie’s interests evolve, from her growing passion for art to a first love realized with a new girlfriend, she begins to question how the close-minded world of figure skating fits in. Poignant and captivating, this powerful graphic memoir captures what it’s like to come of age, come out, and come to terms with leaving behind everything you used to know.
This is a special event OPEN to the general public, including non-lady-types, and is being held on a WEDNESDAY

The Stand is a classic tale of good vs. evil, loss weighed against redemption and despair pitted against hope. It is an apocalyptic vision of man’s battle to save life against a worldwide plague of death. For when Captain Trips works its way across the land, it is time to make a stand. Award-winning writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (HBO’s Big Love), and artists Mike Perkins (Captain America) and Laura Martin (Astonishing X-Men), join forces to bring one of the great novels of modern literature to life through graphic art storytelling.
