This month, we conclude our look at the relationship between artists and their creations with a troubling true story of childhood trauma. “Remarkable and intensely dramatic, Stitches tells the story of a fourteen-year-old boy who awakes one day from a supposedly harmless operation to discover that he has been transformed into a virtual mute―a vocal cord removed, his throat slashed and stitched together like a bloody boot. From horror to hope, Small proceeds to graphically portray an almost unbelievable descent into adolescent hell and the difficult road to physical, emotional, and artistic recovery.” Closely related to comic books, graphic novels are a uniquely American mode of storytelling known for an incredible range of expression thanks to their union of words and pictures.

This group is intended for adults aged 18 or older. No need to be a comic fan—give this unique medium a try. Please call (315) 536-6114 or visit to register for this free event. (Be sure to talk to Alex at the library about reserving a copy of the book.) .
