Meet comics creator Ryan North, our very special guest for Library Comic Con 2019!

Ryan North is the writer responsible for Dinosaur Comics, the Eisner and Harvey award-winning Adventure Time comics, the #1 bestselling anthology series Machine of Death and the New York Times bestselling and Eisner-award winning Unbeatable Squirrel Girl series for Marvel. He's turned Shakespeare into NYT-bestselling choose-your-own-path books that allows YOU to play through and make the decisions for Shakespeare's heroes, which is absolutely a great idea and won't cause them to get into trouble three choices in. His latest book, HOW TO INVENT EVERYTHING, is nothing less than a complete cheat sheet for civilization. He lives in Toronto, where he once messed up walking his dog so badly it made the news.

Read some of Ryan's books, and then come hear him explain how to survive as a stranded time-traveller!  He'll also be signing comics and such for his fans.

This event is brought to you with the support of the Alberta Foundation for the Arts.
