We are so excited that Emil Ferris took home this year's Angoulême award for Best Book of the Year. After overcoming West Nile Virus and partial paralysis, and having her books lost at sea it is amazing to see her take home this top prize.
Read her profile in the New York Times here.
Ferris is also the first woman to take home the prize since Marjane Satrapi for Poulet aux Prunes in 2005 and only the sixth woman ever to receive it.
What an accomplishment and what a book! We cannot wait for the second volume to drop this fall.
