The always-brilliant Michael DeForge will be on tour across the US and Canada this March for his latest graphic novel: Sticks Angelica, Folk Hero! He'll be joined by musician Sadie Dupuis (Sad13, Speedy Ortiz) who will play a solo set following the reading in Providence, Philadelphia, Chicago, Cambridge, and Brooklyn. Come out for a celebratory lo-fi comics night!

If you're curious about the mysterious Sticks Angelica, this is what you need to know: Sticks is, in her own words, "49 years old. Former: Olympian, poet, scholar, sculptor, minister, activist, Governor General, entrepreneur, line cook, headmistress, Mountie, columnist, libertarian, cellist." After a high-profile family scandal, Sticks escapes to the woods to live in what would be relative isolation were it not for the many animals that surround and inevitably annoy her. Sticks narrates her way through the forest, recalling formative incidents from her storied past in what becomes a strange sort of autobiography.
