When: Thursday, April 18, 2019 at 7:30 PM – 8:30 PM

Where: WORD Jersey City – 123 Newark Ave, Jersey City, New Jersey 07302

Join WORD for an evening with Joe Ciardiello, author of the new book A Fistful of Drawings. In this gorgeous graphic memoir, Joe Ciardiello gracefully weaves together his Italian family history and the mythology of the American West while paying homage to the classic movie and TV Westerns of the ’50s and ’60s. Featuring Ciardiello’s signature sinuous ink line and vivid watercolors, A Fistful of Drawings illuminates the oversized characters that dominated the cinematic American West—featuring John Ford, John Wayne, Clint Eastwood, Claudia Cardinale, Sophia Loren, and many more. A paean to Hollywood, a love letter to the Western, and a tribute to its Italian influences.
