READ Books in the Charles H. Scott Gallery invites you to join us at 12:30pm to meet graphic novelist SETH who will be on hand to answer questions and sign his new book GEORGE SPROTT (1894-1975).


Seth is the cartoonist behind the painfully infrequent comic book series PALOOKAVILLE. Currently, he is serializing the story CLYDE FANS between the series' covers, which in 2010 will cease to be a pamphlet and will appear in annual hardcovers. This is a task that has gone on for a decade and will continue for several more years. His novels, which have been translated into 8 languages, include IT'S A GOOD LIFE IF YOU DON'T WEAKEN, WIMBLEDON GREEN, the aforementioned CLYDE FANS BOOK ONE and the illustrated memoir of his father, BANNOCK, BEANS AND BLACK TEA. The first volume of Seth's sketchbooks has appeared under the title VERNACULAR DRAWINGS and another will present itself when time permits. In 2007, Seth serialized the story GEORGE SPROTT (1894-1975) in the New York Times Magazine in 25 installments, and has expanded the story to appear as a standalone book in Spring 2009.
