Please join us for our last event with some of the most influential artists today, “the Hernandez Bros,” together with Natalia Hernandez and scholars Qiana Whitted (University of South Carolina) and Darieck Scott (UC Berkeley). We will enjoy our guests’ presentations at the Iowa City Public Library as well as a variety of events. On Friday, we will play  Love and Rockets: The Great American Comic Book at Filmscene, a documentary that celebrates 40 years of the artists’ career. This is part of a longer series at Filmscene devoted to comics adapted into films. 

On Saturday, there will be a Q&A with Jaime and Beto at the Public Library and they will be signing books with Natalia Hernandez at Prairie Lights.
