The wait is over! Chester's first ever book launch at Librairie D+Q is happening Tonight at 7pm. Come early - while entrance is free, the seating is limited!
Chester Brown will be presenting a *700-slides* slideshow about his new book Paying for It, which will be followed by a Q&A period and book signing.
If you are unable to attend the launch but are dying to get Chester to sign your copy of the book, you can stop by the store before the event, buy your copy, and leave it at the store for him to sign it before he leaves Montreal to continue his North American tour!
Paying for It is a natural progression for Chester Brown as it combines the personal and sexual aspects of his autobiographical work with the polemical drive of Louis Riel. Brown calmly lays out the facts of how he became not only a willing participant in but also a vocal proponent of one of the world's most hot-button topics--prostitution.
Paying for It is one of the mostly highly anticipated graphic novels this year, and will be the most talked about graphic novel of 2011.
