On the April 25 edition, we talk with Deb Vankin, author of the new graphic novel "Poseurs," which is set in L.A. and chronicles the "party noir" lives and trials of three teens.
The book is widely available at bookstores and especially those that feature graphic novels or "comic books," including Secret Headquarters in Silver Lake and Golden Apple Comics on Melrose. The book also is available on Amazon.com, of course.
Deb reports: "There's a 'Poseurs' page on Facebook. Go on Facebook and type Poseurs in the search box. Hit 'like.'"
For the less initiated, she recommends these graphic novels as worthy reads for adults.
