Celebrate the publication of Muqtatafat, the first anthology of independent comics from the Arab world published in the U.S.
Edited by Boston and Cambridge-based team of Anna Mudd, A. David Lewis and Paul Beran, and published by local Ninth Art Press, Muqtatafat presents to North American readers a glimpse of the vibrant and diverse world of Arab comics, featuring 15 artists from Lebanon, Egypt, Jordan and elsewhere. Political, personal, satirical and whimsical, these comics present unusual insights into the creativity and culture of the Middle East.
At this event, the editors and publisher will discuss and disiplay the contents of the book, describe the process of its publication, and give an introduction to the world of Arab comics in general, including the legal and censorship problems facing Samandal, the groundbreaking Lebanese comics journal, for which all sales of Muqtatafat are a benefit.
THURSDAY FEB 4, 6:30 PM AT THE CAMBRIDGE PUBLIC LIBRARY, 449 BROADWAY, CAMBRIDGE.
