With the release of his new book, Equinoxes (a Publisher’s Weekly Top 10 Fall Release), author Cyril Pedrosa will be making several North American appearances.
In the ground-breaking work, Pedrosa demonstrates a rare intensity and narrative sensibility.
In an equinox, day is as long as night, as if the world found perfect equilibrium between shadow and light, a fleeting equilibrium, similar to the stakes of our human destinies. Segmented into four tableaux for four seasons, unrelated people of all social backgrounds seeking equilibrium cross paths with other solitudes, weaving in and out of one another’s lives- all captivated and tormented by the enigmatic meaning of life. Every season has its visual identity and its individual voice, culminating in summer and, possibly, an answer.
Pedrosa will be making the following appearances during his visit:

Panel: 3:00pm Can You Draw the Meaning of Life?
Location: Brooklyn Historical Society Auditorium (128 Pierrepont St.)
Three comics creators take on big questions–philosophical, scientific, spiritual. Lauren Redniss (Thunder & Lightning) explores the past, present, and controversial future of our world through weather phenomenons. Best-selling French creator Cyril Pedrosa (Equinoxes) reflects on the connections made between people over time and space. And Tom Hart (Rosalie Lightning) asks in a tragic yet beautiful memoir about his young daughter’s death: can you capture the meaning of a life, as you mourn its loss? Moderated by cartoonist and choreographer Kriota Willberg ((No) Pain!).
