About the Event
The Eureka Springs Carnegie Library and the Writers’ Colony at Dairy Hollow (WCDH) present an author reading and Q&A on October 6 at 4:30 pm under the tent in the Eureka Springs Carnegie Library Garden at 188 Spring Street (south of the Carnegie Library Gardens Building). Author-illustrator Sean Fitzgibbon will read from, his latest non-fiction graphic work, "What Follows is True: Crescent Hotel." Afterwards, he will answer questions and discuss the research involved in creating this 240-page fully painted, graphic narrative. The book blends oral histories, newspaper articles and Norman Baker’s own vanity biography to examine this historical happening and the complicated determinations of yesteryear’s monsters.
WCDH alumnus Sean Fitzgibbon explores unusual, real places and events through his work. He’s been teaching college art for almost 20 years, has an MFA in art, and a passion for making art and visual storytelling. He has exhibited his work throughout the US.
