Author-illustrator Jarrett J. Krosoczka’s highly anticipated graphic novel Hey, Kiddo comes out on October 9! To celebrate the release, our friends at Graphix hosted a Twitter takeover to give us a sneak peek at Krosoczka’s memoir depicting the complexities of his upbringing.
Every hour, they revealed a new section from Hey, Kiddo. Here is a roundup of the tweets below—make sure to follow @GraphixBooks for future announcements and takeovers! Check out #HeyKiddoTakeover to follow the conversation.
As a young teen, Jarrett knew that writing comics and being a cartoonist was everything he wanted in life, so he read everything he could on the subject… #HeyKiddoTakeover @StudioJJK @Scholastic pic.twitter.com/YJVvuDCdJu— Graphix (@GraphixBooks) October 4, 2018
