On Friday, June 14 at 6:00 p.m. Cellar Door will host renowned author and essayist Roxane Gay, who will be in conversation with author Nalo Hopkinson in a panel discussion titled. “Women in Comics.”   The discussion, which will explore what it means to be women of color writing in the comics industry, will be moderated by local poet and educator, Rachelle Cruz.  Gay made her comics’ debut with The Black Panther: World of Wakanda, diving into the stories of the Midnight Angels, breakout characters from Ta-Nehisi Coates’ Black Panther Universe. Best known for her essay collection, Bad Feminist, Gay beautifully transitions into this fantastic graphic novel to tell a love story that is as tender as it is brutal.   Nalo Hopkinson is an award-winning novelist, asked by Neil Gaiman to help him expand his Sandman Universe, alongside several other authors. The work, Welcome to the House of Dahomey, tells the story of the houseboat of Erzulie Fréda, where the souls of Voodoo followers go when they sleep. But even the fearsome Erzulie is powerless when her dream river turns sour, tossing her house from one realm and into another…the Dreaming. House of Whispers Vol. 1 will be released in trade paperback on July 30th.   Tickets are required to attend this event and include one copy of World of Wakanda and one pre-order of House of Whispers Vol. 1. The purchase of a ticket admits the purchaser and one guest.  Tickets are available via Eventbrite at Cellar Door Books is located at 5225 Canyon Crest Drive Suite 30A.
