This virtual author visit is free and open to the public as part of the Library's 5th annual Great GeekFest comic-con. The talk with stream live on the Library's YouTube channel, where questions will be taken at the end of the presentation.

Vera Brosgol is the author of the 2017 Caldecott Honor picture book Leave Me Alone!, as well as the Eisner, Cybils, and Harvey Award-winning graphic novel Anya’s Ghost. Her latest book is the acclaimed graphic novel memoir, Be Prepared.

Born in Moscow, Russia in 1984, Vera immigrated to the United States with her family in 1989. A voracious reader and obsessive artist, Vera did not consider making books to be a viable job (possibly because she’d never had an author visit!). Instead she began her career in animation, studying Classical Animation at Sheridan College and working for a decade at Laika Inc. as a storyboard artist on films including Coraline, The Boxtrolls, Paranorman, and Kubo and the Two Strings. In 2016 she made the leap to being a full-time author and couldn’t be happier.

A West Coast transplant, she spends her days in beautiful Portland, OR with her chihuahua Omar. When she’s not writing and illustrating, she’s busy riding her bike, doing yoga, baking sourdough bread, and knitting embarrassing sweaters for little Omar.

Books are available for purchase through Beanbag Books. Anyone purchasing as part of Vera's virtual visit will receive a signed bookplate! 

Vera's visit is presented by the Delaware County District Library, in partnership with the Friends of the Library and Beanbag Books.
