Jason Lutes in conversation with Jack Mayer
Wednesday, October 17, 6 p.m. at Marquis Theatre & Cafe
Presented by Vermont Book Shop and Marquis Theatre & Cafe. This event is free, books, food and drink will be available to purchase at event.

Jason Lutes, Vermont-based cartoonist of the graphic novel omnibus Berlin, a 20 year literary masterpiece of historical fiction about the decline of the Weimar Republic and the rise of fascist extremism in 1930s Germany in conversation with local author Jack Mayer, author of the award-winning Before the Court of Heaven, a fictional depiction of events as they unfolded in Germany and beyond.

Immaculately drawn and carefully researched, Jason’s story is shaped by the historical events, but focused on the way real, normal people would live an experience like this – the rise of populist extremism and the silencing of diverse voices.
