This weekend at New York Comic Con, bestselling graphic novelist Raina Telgemeier shared some big news: Two new books are on the way!
First up is Share Your Smile, on sale April 30, 2019! For readers interested in writing, drawing, or both, Share Your Smile will guide readers in brainstorming ideas, making lists, featuring their personal photos, and using their imagination as a catalyst for storytelling. For additional inspiration, Share Your Smile also features a behind-the-scenes look at Telgemeier’s work, including a teaser to her new memoir.
Speaking of her new memoir... to great fanfare, Raina revealed the cover and synopsis of her next graphic novel memoir: Guts!
On sale September 10, 2019, Guts is a graphic novel memoir, following Smile and Sisters. Thoughtful, charming, and funny, Guts brings readers a true story of growing up and gathering the courage to face—and conquer—one’s fears. In Guts, young Raina wakes up one night with a terrible upset stomach. Her mom has one, too, so it’s probably just a bug. Raina eventually returns to school, where she’s dealing with the usual highs and lows: friends, not-friends, and classmates who think the school year is just one long gross-out session. It soon becomes clear that Raina’s tummy trouble isn’t going away...and it coincides with her worries about food, school, and changing friendships.
