Bookstock presents author and cartoonist Jason Lutes

Thursday, Oct. 15 at 7 p.m.—WOODSTOCK—Considered one of the masterworks of the graphic novel golden age, “Berlin” is “rich with well-researched historical detail, compassionate in its character studies, and as timely as ever in its depiction of a society slowly awakening to the stranglehold of fascism.”

“Berlin” is an intricate look at the fall of the Weimar Republic through the eyes of its citizens—Marthe Müller, a young woman escaping the memory of a brother killed in World War I; Kurt Severing, an idealistic journalist losing faith in the printed word as fascism and extremism take hold; and the Brauns, a family torn apart by poverty and politics. Lutes weaves these characters’ lives into the larger fabric of a city slowly ripping apart.

In this talk, Jason Lutes will discuss his development as a cartoonist, touching on the various influences—from William Faulkner to “Dungeons & Dragons,” “Wim Wenders” to “Star Wars”—that inspired his creative process and culminated in the creation of his 600-page opus.

Attendees will have access to chat for asking questions and communicating with author Jason Lutes. You will receive an event reminder a week before and again on the day of the event.
