Reading and wine reception with Mike Cavallaro




Thursday, March 18, 2010, 6 p.m.
Mike Cavallaro reads from Parade (with Fireworks) (Image Comics, 2008)

Mike Cavallaro’s comic is based on a family story that takes place during the Feast of the Epiphany in 1923 Calabria. Tensions are high between fascist party members and socialist organizers. An argument escalates into a gunfight, and a fascist shoots Vincenzo, who supports the socialist cause. When his brother Paolo retaliates and goes into hiding, the family faces unforeseen hardship. Parade (With Fireworks) takes place during a critical period in Italy’s history, but its emphasis is the human element of the story— questions of family, country, loyalty, and betrayal set against a volatile political climate. The book was nominated for a 2008 Will Eisner Comic Industry Award for Best Limited Series and for the Young Adult Library Services Association 2010 “Great Graphic Novels for Teens” list.

“Whether he’s portraying sunlit festivals and bloody gunfights or dank prison cells and tense courtrooms, Cavallaro’s mastery of light and shadow is as impressive as his versatility as a visual storyteller.”
