Jim Ottaviani signs @ Austin Books & Comics

Thursday, September 29th, 2011

Start Time: 04:00PM    End Time: 07:00PM

Jim Ottaviani is the world’s preeminent writer of comics and graphic novels about science, and we’re lucky to be the only store in Austin to host him! Most recently, Ottaviani has writtenFeynman, the substantial graphic novel biography of Richard Feynman: quantum physicist, Nobel winner, bestselling author and safe-cracker. Other notable works include a biography of Niels Bohr and the fast-paced tale of the desperate lives of early paleontologists, and T-Minus: The Race to the Moon, from Aladdin books. Ottaviani has worked as a nuclear engineer and is currently employed as a reference librarian in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Brilliantly illustrated by Leland Myrick, Feynman tells the story of presents the larger-than-life exploits of adventurer, musician, world-class raconteur, and one of the greatest minds of the twentieth century: Richard Feynman, including his work on the Manhattan Project and the Challenger disaster. Anyone who ever wanted to know more about Richard P. Feynman, quantum electrodynamics, the fine art of the bongo drums, the outrageously obscure nation of Tuva, or the development and popularization of the field of physics in the United States need look no further than this rich and joyful work.
