Join National Book Award Finalist Jarrett J. Krosoczka and a host of readers as they bring his critically-acclaimed graphic memoir, HEY, KIDDO, to life in a live reading. Artwork from the book will be projected onto the big screen as this story about family addiction, redemption, and the saving power of art is presented unabridged. Part literary event, part experimental theater—this will be a truly remarkable experience.
