Posted by on 26 September 09:09 (about 2 months ago)

Please join us on Saturday, October 5, from 6pm to 9pm, as we welcome Frank Santoro to celebrate the release of his masterful, one-of-a-kind comics memoir, PITTSBURGH! This book has taken quite a circuitous route to finally be celebrated here in the city of its making:  initially published to much fanfare in France, in the summer of 2018, it was another year until its September 17 release by the esteemed publisher, New York Review Comics, since which date Frank has been touring fall festivals supporting its release.  Now, at last, we can join Frank and celebrate it here in Pittsburgh.  We hope you can make it!

In the meantime, take a moment to read Mike Machosky’s great piece on Pittsburgh for the Tribune Review.

And anyone so inclined can get some substantial background on the making of this book in Frank's just published interview with Caitlin McGurk in The Comics Journal.

Still here?  Then take a moment to watch this interview with Frank that is more or less an artist's statement; made at the 2019 Angoulême Festival.
