Museum’s 15th Anniversary Celebration with Jeff Smith
Jeff Smith, creator of the award-winning comic book series Bone, will speak about his work and sign books as part of the Museum’s 15th anniversary celebration. Like Charles Schulz did for the comic strip, Smith redefined the graphic novel format when he released The Complete Bone Adventures Volume One: Out From Boneville, which sold an unprecedented 50,000 copies in its first year. Bone won numerous awards including 10 Eisner Awards and 11 Harveys. In 2005, Bone was chosen to launch the first graphic novel series for children from a major publishing house, Graphix, an imprint of Scholastic Books. Smith’s other works include Rasl and Tuki. Smith will headline a celebration of cartooning that will also feature New York Times best-selling author/illustrator Jarrett Krosoczka, creator of Star Wars: Jedi Academy and Platypus Police Squad; Kid Beowulf’s Lex Fajardo; Paige Braddock of Jane’s World; plus additional guests. Learn more about Jeff Smith and the Museum’s anniversary celebration here.
