EVENT OVERVIEW: Stephan Pastis, Creator of Pearls Before Swine, will Meet & Greet fans and Author Autograph his Books, including his New Softcover Pearls Hogs the Road: A Pearls Before Swine Treasury.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Stephan Pastis is an Attorney turned Cartoonist. A Graduate of the University of California, Berkeley, and the UCLA School of Law, he worked as a Lawyer before trying his hand at cartooning. Pastis lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with his wife and two children.
ABOUT THE NEW BOOK: Move over! Pearls Before Swine is back and badder than ever in the new treasury collection Pearls Hogs the Road. The Pearls gang returns with characteristically misanthropic humor (but with more leather): no self-aggrandizing is too flagrant for Rat, no subject is too erudite for Goat, and no sensory input is too basic for Pig. All topics are fair game for Stephan Pastis and his brass-knuckle punch lines. Comic strip censors, apathetic baristas, and IRS employees are all strongly advised to laugh or get out of the way. Pearls Hogs the Road also features three comic strips illustrated by the legendary Bill Watterson of Calvin and Hobbes, who ended a 19-year hiatus from the comics page to collaborate with Pastis.
