Hey, NYC! Catch Mimi Pond tonight at McNally Jackson

Hey there, New York! The amazing Mimi Pond is heading straight from TCAF to you, or rather, to McNally Jackson, where you should be tonight. That's right: Mimi Pond will be at McNally Jackson for Over Easy tonight, Monday, May 12th, at 7 pm.

Mimi will be joined in conversation by Lisa Birnbach (True Prep), and will present a slideshow with a signing to follow. You could definitely use some Mimi in your Monday: here's the Facebook event.

Over Easy sold out at TCAF, is in its second week on the New York Times Best Sellers list of hardcover graphic fiction, and continues to receive well-deserved rave reviews:

"Pond recalls her youthful grunt work and floundering love affairs with such wry, observant nuance that she imparts a poignant sense of glamour to that run-down world of dive bars, thrift shops and cherished greasy spoons." The Globe and Mail

"Stocked to the brim with colourful characters, from the waitresses living out their women’s-lib lives with a rotating cast of boyfriends, to the caustic cooks who write poetry when they’re not flipping eggs, the Imperial is the kind of sandpaper-y place that hones artistic ideals into the tools necessary to start picking apart life." National Post

Be sure to check out her recent interviews with AM New York and with Village Voice, who call Over Easy "clever [and] warm-hearted". I had the pleasure of meeting Mimi in person this weekend and believe me, she always has a great story to tell— come hear a few tonight!
