Our book launch event with Sophie Goldstein has been postponed and will be rescheduled for later this spring or summer. Copies of An Embarassment of Witches remain available at Magic City Books. Stay tuned for a new date.
Magic City Books is proud to host the book launch event for An Embarassment of Witches, the latest graphic novel from Tulsa Artist Fellow, Sophie Goldstein.
A coming-of-age urban fantasy set in a world full of animal familiars, enchanted plants, and spell-casting that explores the mundane horrors of breakups, job searches, and post-graduate existential angst.
Life after college isn’t turning out exactly as Rory and Angela had planned. Rory, recently dumped at the gate of her flight to Australia, needs to find a new life path ASAP. What do you do with a B.A. in Communications and a minor in Southeast Asian Spellcraft? Maybe her cute new housemate Guy is the answer she’s looking for (spoiler alert: he isn’t).
Meanwhile, Angela is buckling under the pressure of a high-stakes internship in a cutting-edge cryptopharmocology lab run by Rory’s controlling mother, who doesn’t know Rory is still in town… and Angela hates keeping secrets.
An Embarrassment of Witches is the story of two childhood friends learning how to be adults—and hoping their friendship can survive the change.
SOPHIE GOLDSTEIN is a graphic novelist, illustrator and comics instructor. Her other books include House of Women, The Oven, and Darwin Carmichael is Going to Hell, which have received multiple Ignatz Awards and Best American Comics selections, among other honors. If she could choose an animal familiar it would be a wolf.
This event is free and open to the public.
