Don't miss the culminating event of a weeklong celebration of Franco-Belgian graphic novels and comics, La Semaine de la Bande Dessinée, Sunday, at 4pm, at the Henry Art Gallery.

Parisian graphic novelist Pierre-François Beauchard (professionally known as David B.), the co-founder of the artist-run publishing group L’Association, and author of the brilliant graphic novel "Epileptic," will be joined by cartoonists Peter Bagge and Jim Woodring in a discussion of comics and graphic novels. Expect these artists to discuss their work and how they employ image, space, and text to create narratives, capture visions, and change our views of the world.

The conversation will be moderated by Kim Thompson, the co-owner of Fantagraphics Books and English translator of "Epileptic." After the event, works by the artists will be available for purchase and signing.

Henry Art Gallery, Seattle, Sunday August 17th, at 4PM
FREE to Henry members or with museum admission
Tickets available at the Henry Admission Desk beginning August 10; seating is limited.
