College Two Rivers Reading Series Hosts Graphic Novelist Tyler Page April 8

March 17, 2014

As part of the Anoka-Ramsey Community College Two Rivers Reading Series, graphic novelist Tyler Page will read from and discuss his graphic novel, Nothing Better, Tuesday, April 8, 11 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. (with a focus on art) and 2 to 3:15pm (with a focus on literature/storytelling) in the Coon Rapids Campus Legacy Room. This event is free and open to the public.

Nothing Better focuses on Jane and Katt’s tumultuous freshmen year at St. Urho College in Minnesota. Forced to live together, these roommates struggle to deal with their differing opinions on religion, partying and relationships. The A.V. Club says Page’s “insight into the minds of early college students is spot-on,” and his characters are “beautifully nuanced, with [a] blend of insecurity, excitement, conflict, humor, and depth.”

Page’s other projects include an autobiographical webcomic, Raised on Ritalin, and a children’s series, ChicagoLand Detective Agency, as an illustrator in collaboration with author Trina Robbins. At the Minneapolis College of Art & Design, Page serves the role of Director of Print Technology Services. Additionally, he is an Eisner Award nominee and the recipient of a Xeric Foundation Grant.

The Two Rivers Reading Series, supported by college’s English Division and Art Division, provides students, faculty, staff, and the public access to award-winning authors, poets, and playwrights each semester. Two Rivers Reading Series events make learning more comprehensive by combining classwork with real-world experiences.
