What would it mean for the God of the Sea to visit a resort town in Wisconsin? What if Jesus met the Goddess of Love in a bar? Graphic novelist and artist Anders Nilsen explores stories like these in his new book Rage of Poseidon (Drawn & Quarterly). Nilsen will present work from the book and discuss the role of mythology and religious stories in his work from the epic Big Questions to his narrative drawing and painting and other unusual storytelling formats. He will discuss these ties between old stories and new meanings in his own work and in the culture at large.
Light refreshments will be provided. Free and open to the public.
