Join us on May 19 at 7:00 PM for Paul Madonna’s presentation of his electrifying mystery novel Come to Light. Full of unexpected plot twists, lively characters and over 100 lush drawings in Madonna’s inimitable style, it is an intoxicating tale of love, murder, books and art.
Paul Madonna is an award-winning artist and best-selling author whose unique blend of drawing and storytelling has been heralded as an “all new art form.”
Paul is the creator of the series All Over Coffee, which ran in the San Francisco Chronicle for twelve years, and the author of five books, including the Emit Hopper Mystery Series. His book Everything is its own reward won the 2011 NCBA Award for best book.
Paul’s work ranges from novels to cartoons to large-scale public murals and can be found internationally in print as well as in galleries and museums, including the Oakland Museum of California and the William Blake Association in France.
Paul was a founding editor for therumpus.net, has taught drawing at the University of San Francisco, and frequently lectures on creative practice. He holds a BFA from Carnegie Mellon University and was the first (ever!) Art Intern at MAD magazine.
