'Before Houdini': The making of a graphic novel, with Jeremy Holt
MIDDLEBURY — Meet local author Jeremy Holt for an in-person signing of his latest graphic novel “Before Houdini,” on Friday, Aug. 9, from 5-7 p.m., during the Jackson Gallery’s opening reception of Holt’s exhibit “The Making of a Graphic Novel.”
This one-of-a-kind exhibit will showcase the creative process behind how a comic book page gets made. Original art and prints will be available for sale. Illustrations by John Lucas. Books provided by The Vermont Book Shop in Middlebury.
Holt is a Vergennes-based author whose most recent works include “Before Houdini,” “After Houdini,” and “Skip to the End.” You may recognize him from a feature story that appeared in the Addison Independent’s Arts+Leisure section last month. If not, let’s catch you up to speed.
Originally from no place in particular, Holt has called Italy, Singapore, England, Norway, and Texas home at various points in his life. He graduated with a B.F.A. in Sound Design from the Savannah College of Art and Design in 2005, and lived in Brooklyn for five years before relocating to Vermont. When not writing, this Mac Genius is fixing computers and getting confused for his identical triplet brothers.
Come meet this inspiring artist and check out his work at the Jackson Gallery, located in the lower level of Middlebury’s Town Hall Theater. Gallery hours are Monday through Saturday 12-5 p.m., and an hour before any public events in the building.
