Graphic artist/novelist Jimmy Gownley, the award-winning creator of the “Amelia Rules!” series of comic novels, will be at Jesup Memorial Library on Tuesday, Aug. 19, at 7 p.m.

In a dynamic, funny presentation, Jimmy takes you on a journey from his beginnings as a teenage cartoonist in the coal regions of Pennsylvania to the New York Times Best Sellers List, and the publication of his latest book, “The Dumbest Idea Ever.” Along the way he explains the creative process through drawing and personal anecdotes, and how simple events from everyday life can lead to exciting and creative ideas for stories and art.

Come learn from one of today’s hottest graphic novelists and discover the five simple places to look to unlock your own creativity.

This special event is co-sponsored by Sherman’s book store, and copies of Mr. Gownley’s books will be available for purchase at the Jesup that evening with a percentage of the sale price donated to the library.
