You'll also have the opportunity to meet some of Drawn & Quarterly's own artists, who will be on hand to sign books and chat. This year, we've got Guy Delisle, Julie Delporte, and Pascal Girard! Schedule below.

GUY DELISLE


Guy Delisle (born January 19, 1966) is a cartoonist and animator from Quebec City, Quebec, Canada, best known for his graphic novels about his travels, such as Shenzhen (2000), Pyongyang (2003), Burma Chronicles (2007), and Jerusalem (2011). With his newest book, A User's Guide to Neglectful Parenting, Delisle takes a break from writing landmark, award-winning travelogues and brings us a collection of humourous, self-deprecating vignettes about the travails of fatherhood.

JULIE DELPORTE

Born in Saint-Malo, France in 1983, Julie Delporte currently lives in Montreal where she publishes books and zines with the collective Colosse. In 2011 - 2012 she was a fellow at The Center for Cartoon Studies in White River Junction, Vermont. She has published a French children’s book (Je suis un raton laveur) about a little girl who turns into a raccoon, some short pieces at L'employé du Moi (Brussels) and in various anthologies. She also organized Montreal’s annual “48 Heures” comics festival and newsprint anthology, and runs  the comics-centric francophone radio show “Dans ta Bulle." Color pencils and dogs with long ears are her favorite antidepressants. Her most recent book is Journal, a collection of her autobiographical webcomics from Koyama Press. A new book by Julie is forthcoming from Drawn & Quarterly next year!

PASCAL GIRARD
Pascal Girard was born in Jonquière in 1981. He began filling the margins of his notebooks with drawings from his first day of school. As he was never able to rid himself of this good habit he naturally decided to make it his career. He received his interdisciplinary Bachelor of Arts from the University of Quebec in Chicoutimi in 2004. Since then he moved to Quebec City and currently divides his time between his illustration career and drawing comics. His first two books, Dans un cruchon and Nicolas, shared the Réal-Fillion prize at the Quebec Francophone Comics Festival in 2006. His most recent book is Reunion (2011), from Drawn & Quarterly.
