Odori Park, by Chris Watkins Odori Park - Blog


Here’s a fun event coming up to put on your calendar if you live in the western New York state area: On Saturday, December 3rd, I’ll be participating with several other area authors in the Fairport Library’s Local Author Book Fair, from 2 to 4pm, at (not surprisingly) the Fairport Public Library (here’s their site, for address and contact info: fairportlibrary.org). Folks who stop by can meet a gaggle of local writers (I think I’m the only cartoonist of the bunch; watch me work that niche!), check out their books, and purchase signed copies. For a list of who you’ll see there, check out the Towpath Reader blog, at hollywolf.wordpress.com.

Holly Wolf, co-organizer of this “Festive Book Signing” event (as they’re also calling it) has been reading all of the participants’ latest works, and posting short reviews on her blog. Here’s her snippet about Odori Park: East Marries West.

Since starting Odori Park back in 2009, I’ve had opportunities to branch out into a number of venues and events I never explored in my past artistic and cartooning lives. Things like gallery showings, guest strips and collaborative comics, all manner of podcasts, big shiny books, and now library book fairs. I’m loving every one of these new experiences.

In case you didn’t know, by the way, you can also purchase the book at a couple local comic shops (Pulp Nouveau Comix and Park Ave. Comics & Games, to be precise), and, of course, you can always buy one right here on this very site. I aim to please, you know.

Hope to see some of you at the fair!
