Jillian and Mariko Tamaki Author Visit @South

Comic-creating cousins Jillian and Markio Tamaki come to the South Branch to share their newest graphic novel This One Summer, a beautiful and lyrical work about two teenage girls learning about the world over the course of a summer stay in a serene beach town.  The fine folks from Mrs. Dalloway's Books will also be on hand to sell copies of the cousins' works.  Don't miss the chance to hear from these gifted and unique creators!
