Join us for a special after school gathering with author/illustrator Terri Lebenson. She will share her new graphic novel, INVISIBLE EMMIE, answer questions and give insight into the work of becoming a professional comic strip artist.
Invisible Emmie is the story of two totally different middle school girls—
quiet, shy, artistic Emmie
popular, outgoing, athletic Katie
—and how their lives unexpectedly intersect one day, when an embarrassing note falls into the wrong hands. . . .
All the crushes, humiliations, boredom, and drama of middle school are compressed into one surprising day in this extraordinary debut graphic novel.
Terri Libenson may or may not have been inspired by her own mostly good, sometimes harrowing middle school experiences in writing Invisible Emmie. She most definitely did draw a lot during class, which worked out well, since she grew up to be a cartoonist: She is the creator of the internationally syndicated, Reuben-Award-winning comic strip The Pajama Diaries. Terri lives with her husband and two daughters in Cleveland, Ohio.
