Chris Schweizer / Artist Alley

Booth No.: 
0108
Description: 

Chris Schweizer will be showcasing galleys from his new middle reader horror graphic novel series THE CREEPS (Fall 2015, Amulet Books). Special ALA event: The protagonists of THE CREEPS attend Pumpkins County Middle School, and are often stymied in their monster hunts by their inability to check out the spooky books which are closely guarded by the grand high librarian. But the librarians that attend ALA can show their patrons that they've got the privileges that our eponymous detectives don't! "Pumpkins County Middle School Library: Forbidden Section Access" badges will be available, and Chris will be making them with small watercolor portraits of conference attendees in the style of THE CREEPS. He will also be signing books from the CROGAN ADVENTURES series and his sketchbook collections and is happy to talk about why TRUE GRIT by Charles Portis is one of the best YA novels ever.
