Happy Friday, Royal Readers!
Tina’s Groove cartoonist Rina Piccolo posted about her excitement to be headed to Germany for not one but TWO presentations.
The first one on Sunday, Oct. 23, during Frankfurt at the world’s biggest book fair, had her live-drawing to mark the launch of the German edition of her co-authored book, Quirky Quarks: A Cartoon Guide to the Fascinating Realm of Physics (Springer, 2016). See more about it in an earlier blog post here:
From there, she heads south to Stuttgart to be part of a talk/presentation in the Buchhaus Wittwer, one of that city’s top ten-rated book stores. Throughout her travels, Rina plans to keep her journal close by and will share her sketches and scribbles on her social media channels. Check her out!
