Small Business Saturday on November 28 encourages consumers to patronize small local shops in response to the breathless hyperbole surrounding “Black Friday.” Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery fully supports this effort (while appreciating the irony of the campaign’s sponsorship by some of the world’s largest corporations.)
The bookstore commemorates the occasion in appropriate fashion with an appearance by Seattle cartoonist Colleen Frakes signing copies of her recent small press graphic memoir Prison Island. The book chronicles the artist’s unconventional upbringing on a remote island penitentiary near Tacoma, Washington, where her parents worked in corrections.
Join us this Saturday from 6:00 to 8:00 PM in our continuing commitment to support the local comix community as we celebrate this exceptional artist. Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery is located at 1201 S. Vale Street in the heart of Seattle’s historic Georgetown industrial arts corridor. Open daily 11:30 to 8:00 PM, Sundays until 5:00 PM. Phone 206.658.0110.
