The San Mateo Library presents GENE LUEN YANG
Books Inc. in Alameda, Saturday, August 16 at 2pm
The San Mateo Library presents author and illustrator of American Born Chinese, the first graphic novel to be nominated for a National Book Award and the first to win the American Library Association’s Printz Award; winner of the Eisner Award for his collaborative project, The Eternal Smile; and creator of the popular Nickelodeon series, Avatar: The Last Airbender, the über talented Gene Luen Yang shares his latest gorgeous, funny comics adventure for teens, The Shadow Hero. About The Shadow Hero: In the comics boom of the 1940s, a legend was born: the Green Turtle. He solved crimes and fought injustice just like the other comics characters. But this mysterious masked crusader was hiding something more than your run-of-the-mill secret identity... The Green Turtle was the first Asian American super hero. The comic had a short run before lapsing into obscurity, but the acclaimed author of "American Born Chinese," Gene Luen Yang, has finally revived this character in "Shadow Hero," a new graphic novel that creates an origin story for the Green Turtle. With artwork by Sonny Liew, this gorgeous, funny comics adventure for teens is a new spin on the long, rich tradition of American comics lore.
