I read her first graphic novel. It probably would be nice to get to see her in person.

I didn't even know that she had a new book coming out.

I'll definitely try to make it to that - I really like her work.

I started reading her last book: Chicken and Plums.. I found it very depressing and sad. I'm still going to see her at Politics and Prose.

Anyone else still planning to go to this tonight? I'll be there for sure, picked up a copy of the book last week.

I decided to go straight home from work for Halloween. I need my chocolate! :-)

Let me know how it was.

It was fantastic, she's really funny and interesting. She talked about her books and how each one came about and what she was trying to do with them, as well as about general culture and politics stuff.

There was a really good sized crowd considering it was Halloween.

Satrapi actually came to my school; it was really fascinating. She discussed the process of how she wrote the book: for example, the idea to include the long speech by the matron in the school was inspired by the speech in Henry James's book "The Portrait of the Artists as a Young Man."

Thanks for sharing. It sounds as if it was fun.
