Author Presentation: Emil Ferris, MY FAVORITE THING IS MONSTERS

In this highly acclaimed graphic novel, Karen Reyes tries to solve the murder of her enigmatic upstairs neighbor, Anka Silverberg, a holocaust survivor, while the interconnected stories of those around her unfold. When Karen's investigation takes us back to Anka's life in Nazi Germany, the reader discovers how the personal and political, the past and present, converge.

 

Emil Ferris grew up Chicago during the turbulent 1960s and is consequently a devotee of all things monstrous and horrific. She has an MFA in creative writing from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
