Presented by The Vancouver Writers Fest
Jeff Lemire belongs to a new class of crossover star. He’s one of Marvel Comics’ most valued writers, and the creative mind behind four monthly titles in the comic book world, each selling 50,000 to 100,000 copies. But, he is equally known as a literary star, a New York Times-bestselling graphic novelist. His three-volume Essex County was named by CBC as one of the decade’s five essential works of Canadian fiction. Reflecting true-to-life characters and raw emotions, Lemire’s jagged drawings and spare words are compelling and surprising. His new novel, Roughneck, is a haunting story about a half-Cree former NHL’er and his kid sister. “I feel most comfortable telling the stories of outsiders, or outcasts,” Lemire says. During this event, you’ll hear, and see, why he’s a star.
