Gene Luen Yang | Quail Ridge Books | Page: Readings & Signings | Indy Week
This is a past event.
When: Wed., Sept. 30, 7 p.m. 2015



National Book Award finalist Gene Luen Yang has crafted some of the most thoughtful and varied graphic novels of the past decade, ranging from historical epics to slices of life to big-time superheroes. His major works include American Born Chinese, which combines the story of the Monkey King with the cultural conflicts of being Asian-American; Boxers and Saints, two books telling the story of the Boxer Rebellion from both sides; multiple graphic novels continuing the story of the animated series Avatar: The Last Airbender (for which he was hired, in part, because he publicly complained about the lily-white casting of the M. Night Shyamalan film version) and, now, a run as writer of Superman. Yang's newest graphic novel, the all-ages Secret Coders!, draws on his day job as a high-school computer science teacher, blending real puzzles and coding exercises into a mystery plot. 7 p.m., free, 3522 Wade Ave., Raleigh, 919-828-1588, —Zack Smith
