Ring in the new year and join us for a roaring twenties good time to celebrate this brand new graphic novel adaptation of The Great Gatsby with recently-returned Minnesota expat and illustrator extraordinaire K. Woodman-Maynard! Katharine will tell us about what it’s like to adapt a classic into a graphic novel, the choices she made to modernize it, and a little bit of her drawing process—plus, she'll answer audience questions!
