Zap! Oy!" & the illustrated mini-journals Ceasefire and Fierce Ease.

The event will take place at the Al Green Theatre in the Miles Nadal Jewish Community Centre (750 Spadina Ave.).

Both artists will have prepared audio/visual presentations, and will participate in a moderated Q&A with the audience. Market Day, jobnik!, and other works by both Sturm and Libicki will be available on site for purchase courtesy of The Beguiling Books & Art.
