What’s in Store: Georgetown Carnival Arts Festival feat. Peter Bagge

Join us at Fantagraphics Bookstore this Saturday, June 8 as we celebrate the Book of Weirdo with Peter Bagge, one time editor of R. Crumb’s influential comix anthology. We’ll display original art and ephemera from the groundbreaking periodical. Bagge will be present to sign copies of this and other recent publications from 4:00 to 6:00 PM. This event coincides with the colorful Georgetown Carnival arts festival featuring interactive art, Harzardfactory’s Power Tool Drag Races, acrobats, games, food, beer, and music, including Northwest garage legends Girl Trouble. Free family fun from noon to 10:00 PM. Exhibition remains on view through July 10.
