Go beyond the printed page with LiterArti, our evenings-and-weekends book club for anyone who loves a good story and great art. We tackle everything from science fiction to graphic novels to post-apocalyptic YA novels, with one common thread: art always plays a part in the tale.
May’s book is The Sculptor by Scott McCloud, author of the popular nonfiction books Understanding Comics (1993), Reinventing Comics (2000), and Making Comics (2006). This epic graphic novel tells the story of David Smith, a young artist who makes a deal with Death to be able to sculpt anything he can imagine with his bare hands. But now that he only has 200 days to live, deciding what to create is harder than he thought. Discovering the love of his life at the 11th hour isn't making it any easier!
