Like cartoons? Love against-all-odds stories? In Alaska this weekend?
Peter Dunlap-Shohl will be giving a "halting, slurred speech" (his words, not ours) about his book-length comic "My Degeneration" this Saturday, Oct. 21, at the Adaptive Abilities Fair in Anchorage, AK.
"My Degeneration" chronicles Dunlap-Shohl's decade-long battle with Parkinson's Disease, and is widely considered one of the best graphic novels on the subject (it is also, admittedly, one of the only).
"My talk begins at 10:00 am and goes for about an hour, including the Q&A at the end. I will have a number of books available for you to pick up, thumb through, put down, then pick up again and finally buy. And yes I will be happy to deface their crisp, clean pages with my damn near illegible signature, " wrote Dunlap-Shohl in a press release. The Adaptive Abilities Fair is being held at Providence Health Park, 3851 Piper St., Tower U Rooms 2281 & 2285, in Anchorage.
An excerpt of the book appeared this summer on The Nib.
