We’re thrilled to announce that our special guests at the Ann Arbor Comic Arts Festival held on June 18 & 19, 2016 will be Cece Bell and Tom Angleberger!
In addition to her 2015 Newbery Honor Book, El Deafo, a comics memoir about growing up with hearing loss and an oversized hearing assistance device, Cece is an author and illustrator of children’s books including Rabbit & Robot: The Sleepover, Bee-Wigged, I Yam a Donkey, and the Sock Monkey series.
Tom has delighted elementary and middle school readers with books like Fake Mustache, Poop Fountain!, The Rat with the Human Face, Horton Halfpott, and Stonewall Hinkleman and the Battle of Bull Run, as well as the popular Origami Yoda series (complete with folding instructions), which he also illustrated.
Cece and Tom are married (to each other!) and collaborated on the book Crankee Doodle.
At A2CAF, they will give the Saturday morning keynote presentation and participate in programming throughout the weekend. They’ll also be available for signing and for chatting one-on-one about comics and kids’ books.
Be sure to mark your calendar!
