Meet Peter Bagge author of Fire!! The Zora Neale Hurston Story

Meet Peter Bagge author of Fire!! The Zora Neale Hurston Story

We are excited to welcome Peter Bagge to talk about his new graphic biography Fire!!: The Zora Neale Hurston Story. Following on the heels of his New York Times bestselling biography of Margaret Sanger, Fire!! is a dazzling graphic novel profiling bookstore favorite Zora Neale Hurston. The fifth of eight kids from a Baptist family in Alabama, Hurston’s writing prowess blossomed at Howard University, and then Barnard College, where she was the sole black student. She arrived in NYC at the height of the Harlem Renaissance and quickly found herself surrounded by peers such as Langston Hughes and Wallace Thurman. Hurston went on to become a noted folklorist and critically acclaimed novelist, including her most provocative work Their Eyes Were Watching God. Despite these landmark achievements, personal tragedies and shifting political winds in the midcentury rendered her almost forgotten by the end of her life. Co-hosted with our friends at King’s Books.

Peter Bagge is the 2014 USA Rockefeller Fellow in Literature. He is the Harvey Award-winning author of the acclaimed 1990s alternative comic series Hate starring slacker hero Buddy Bradley and a contributing editor to Reason magazine. A graduate of the School of Visual Arts in New York City, he got his start in comics in the R. Crumb-edited magazine Weirdo. Bagge lives in Seattle with his wife Joanne, daughter, and three cats.
