MTL & Toronto Events: Julie Doucet Launches Carpet Sweeper Tales!
This spring D+Q is releasing brand new work from Julie Doucet. In Carpet Sweeper Tales, Julie uses the medium of collage to explore themes of femininity, contrasting lighthearted dialogue with 1970s imagery. Publishers Weekly calls Carpet Sweeper Tales: "...an offbeat and startling new collection by a major voice in feminist and underground comics...The playful combination of visual, verbal, and even aural elements (if you read the book aloud as suggested) that make up these avant-garde collage romances display Doucet’s fine eye and ear for storytelling outside of traditional pencil-and-ink comics."
I'm happy to share that this April, Julie will be launching Carpet Sweeper Tales in both Montreal and Toronto! First up, Julie has a hometown event in Montreal, on Thursday April 7th at Librairie D+Q (211 Rue Bernard O). Next, Julie will be stopping by Toronto, on Sunday April 10th at Type Books (883 Queen St. West). You can find out more about the events here, and RSVP for the Montreal event here.
See you and Julie in April, kids!
