Raina Telgemeier Tickets to Raina Telgemeier's presentation have sold out, but you can still meet her and get a signed book!

Starting at 3:00 pm, we will have a standby signing line at Willow Glen Middle School. Customers who have purchased at least one copy of Ghosts from Hicklebee’s may join the line. Raina will only have time to personalize one book but may be able to sign an additional two books if time allows. We can’t guarantee that all in line will get books signed but we’ll do our best.

If you don't want to wait in line, or can't make it on October 30th, you can also pre-order any of Raina's books through our website or at the store and we will get them signed for you on the day of the event.

 

 

Hicklebee's is thrilled to host Raina Telgemeier, the #1 New York Times bestselling, multiple Eisner Award-winning creator of Smile and Sisters, which are both graphic memoirs based on her childhood. She is also the creator of Drama, which was named a Stonewall Honor Book and was selected for YALSA’s Top Ten Graphic Novels for Teens.

Telgemeier will be talking about her amazing new book, Ghosts, a perfect book to contemplatie on many levels, and especially perfect for this spirit-filled season.

"In her treatment of illness and death [the younger sister has cyctic fibrosis], Telgemeier nudges readers toward the edge of their comfort zone, but she never leaves them alone there. The story is consistently engaging, the plot is tightly built..." -PW Reviews

Catrina and her family are moving to the coast of Northern California because her little sister, Maya, is sick. Cat isn't happy about leaving her friends for Bahía de la Luna, but Maya has cystic fibrosis and will benefit from the cool, salty air that blows in from the sea. As the girls explore their new home, a neighbor lets them in on a secret: There are ghosts in Bahía de la Luna. Maya is determined to meet one, but Cat wants nothing to do with them. As the time of year when ghosts reunite with their loved ones approaches, Cat must figure out how to put aside her fears for her sister's sake -- and her own.

Raina Telgemeier has masterfully created a moving and insightful story about the power of family and friendship, and how it gives us the courage to do what we never thought possible.
