Artist Meg Cranston will read from her two new books Good Morning, Evil Genius. and Hot Pants in A Cold Cold World. Good Morning, Evil Genius was written between 1996 and 2000. The story chronicles the adventures...or misadventures...of the unnamed Evil Genius and is accompanied by a series of drawings derived from a children's coloring book. Hot Pants in a Cold Cold World is a survey of Cranston's work from 1988 to the present and includes a selection of her writing from that period. A talk and reception will follow.
