Dore’ Ripley, a lecturer at California State University, East Bay (CSUEB), had a better afternoon than most on January 20th. Why? Gene Luen Yang --- the recently named National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature and author of BOXERS & SAINTS, THE SHADOW HERO, AMERICAN BORN CHINESE and more came to visit! The CSUEB alum had a lot to say about Asian representation in comics, both today and throughout history. Dore’ recounts some of the most interesting parts of his talk, below, so read on --- your comics knowledge is about to get a lot more nuanced!

Fans of Cindy Callaghan's books --- including LOST IN ROME, LOST IN PARIS and LOST IN LONDON --- should rejoice, because she's working on a new book, LOST IN HOLLYWOOD! We're thrilled to be able to exclusively reveal the cover, below, as well as the re-release of LOST IN IRELAND (previously called LUCKY ME).   
In the much-anticipated sequel to ESCAPE FROM MR. LEMONCELLO'S LIBRARY, MR. LEMONCELLO'S LIBRARY OLYMPICS, teams from across the country are competing in the most bookish competition ever created! There are library cart relay races, Dewey decimal classification games and even a Reading While Eating contest. Therefore, we thought it was only fair to ask the author, Chris Grabenstein, what he would excel at were he invited to play along. See his response, below!
