Beloved illustrator (and staff favorite) Charles Vess will discuss his latest collaboration with fantasy author Charles de Lint, Seven Wild Sisters: A Modern Fairy Tale. Known for his collaborations with de Lint (Cats of Tanglewood Forest, Medicine Road) and Neil Gaiman (Stardust, Blueberry Girl) Vess is a prolific artist and has won three World Fantasy Awards for his work. Of Seven Wild Sisters, Kirkus Reviews says, “Beautiful bookmaking, lovely storytelling and wondrous illustrations make for a splendid sequel-of-sorts to The Cats of Tanglewood Forest.” The evening continues with an art opening at our used bookstore, Downtown Books and News at 67 N. Lexington Ave where Vess’s work is on display.
