About this Event
Join acclaimed cartoonists and old friends Chris Oliveros and Chester Brown as they discuss Oliveros’ new book: Are You Willing to Die for the Cause? The graphic novel dissects a contentious and dramatic period in Canadian history: the rise of the Front de libération du Québec (FLQ).
“With cartooning that is at once charming, humorous and gritty, Oliveros captures the people behind this movement that began with noble ideas and descended into tragedy with high-school students delivering hand-made bombs between classes... He reveals Montreal in the 1960’s in all its dreamy, working class squalor and glory.”—Heather O’Neill, author of When We Lost Our Heads
Books will be available for sale by The Beguiling.
