Join Rain Taxi for a night celebrating comics in context. In his new anthology of seven comics essays, Save It for Later: Promises, Parenthood, and the Urgency of Protest (Abrams ComicArts), graphic novelist Nate Powell addresses living in an era of what he calls “necessary protest.” As Powell moves between subjective and objective experiences raising his children—depicted in their childhood innocence as imaginary anthropomorphic animals—he reveals the electrifying sense of trust and connection with neighbors and strangers alike. Free to attend, registration required. We hope to “see” you there!

Books can be purchased either during the event or in advance from Magers & Quinn Booksellers in Minneapolis; just click the button below. Fun Fact: Any and all books you purchase via this link help support Rain Taxi’s virtual event series— thank you!
