In Love and Rockets, Jaime Hernandez has followed the lives of his queer, Chicano cast of characters for over 30 years of romance, heartbreak, and the self-awareness that comes with age. Is This How You See Me? hones in on Jaime’s two most beloved characters, Maggie and Hopey, flashing backward and forward in time to reveal how the passage of time has molded these young LA punks into complex, middle-aged women. An intimate look at how people change and drift apart, yet remain deeply affected by their formative years, Is This How You See Me? brings Hernandez’s Love and Rockets series full circle.
Get Lit is a book discussion group for those adventurous souls who would like to read a little something different. We meet at Crawford Brew Works (3659 Devils Glen Road). No reservations are needed, and participants do not need to finish the book or like the book to join in the discussion. Books are available on a first-come basis at the previous month's Get Lit meeting and after that at the Information Desk. For more information, please call 563-344-5707 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
This Global Gathering Mexico program is supported by our Title Sponsor Terrostar Interactive Media, our Authorized Edition sponsor Morgan Stanley, and the Bettendorf Public Library Foundation.
