Join Edel Rodriguez and Chip Kidd at the exclusive Worm Book Release event held at the prestigious Poster House in New York City. This highly-anticipated gathering brings together two esteemed figures, Edel Rodriguez being hailed as "America's illustrator-in-chief," and Chip Kidd, a renowned graphic designer and writer. Together, they will engage in a thought-provoking conversation centered around Rodriguez's captivating new graphic memoir, Worm: A Cuban American Odyssey. Worm delves into the compelling narrative of Rodriguez's childhood experiences during the Cold War and his family's forced exile from Cuba. Through his evocative artwork, Rodriguez vividly portrays the longing and resilience of those left behind, while also exploring his own journey as an artist and activist. As he witnesses America's transformation towards extremism, Rodriguez grapples with questions of patriotism and the complexities of belonging. This event provides a unique opportunity to witness a dialogue that delves into the themes of identity, cultural displacement, and mortality. Rodriguez's bold and symbolic works, inspired by personal history, religious rituals, politics, memory, and nostalgia, offer a profound exploration of the human experience. Chip Kidd, a prominent figure in the graphic design industry, has collaborated with renowned artists and writers, including Neil Gaiman and Art Spiegelman. His expertise and insights will undoubtedly enrich the conversation, providing a comprehensive exploration of the themes addressed in Worm. Worm: A Cuban American Odyssey will be available for purchase at the Poster House Shop, and attendees will have the chance to have their copies signed by the artist himself. This captivating book release event is not to be missed, as it sheds light on the overlooked immigrants who both protect and invigorate American freedom.
