Kate Gavino

We first became acquainted with the work of Filipino American cartoonist Kate Gavino through her book and blog, Last Night's Reading, a collection of annotated cartoons drawn at author events she attended in person (at our store and some others) and via Skype.  We’re excited to welcome her back to Elliott Bay in person this time to speak about her new graphic novel, Sanpaku (Archaia). In Sanpaku, Marcine, a 12-year-old Filipino American girl, becomes fascinated with a Japanese idea that seeing the white around the iris of your eyes is a bad omen. The book was inspired in part by the author’s experiences growing up in an immigrant family living in suburban Houston during the 1990s.
