A local author and top comic book historian will be featured as part of an upcoming virtual presentation hosted by an area library.

The Salem-South Lyon District Library will virtually host Author Ken Quattro of Saline on Monday, May 3rd at 7pm. His latest book, Invisible Men: The Trailblazing Black Artists of Comic Books, is said to pull back the curtain and share stories of the individuals who broke into a world formerly occupied only by white artists.

Organizers say attendees will be able to hear behind-the-scenes stories of the comic book industry's black contributors, including a descendent of one of George Washington's slaves, a former prisoner of Sing Sing, and Harlem Renaissance artists.

Registration information can be found through the provided link and in the attached press release.
