Bookmaking Extravaganza: BD Pop-up Show

Author Luminiţa Alexandru and illustrator Alexandru Ciubotariu (also known as Pisica Pătrată) are coming to Timişoara with an interactive show that will transport you into the fascinating world of comic strips. Through a pop-up art installation, these two inventive artists will reveal the creative process behind their new book, "The Monster in the Wardrobe (and Other Fables)" – a unique album featuring three comic strips filled with humor, suspense, and creativity, published by Shelfie.

Children will have the opportunity to explore all the secrets behind these fables, from the initial concept to the printed book, and to see the hard work and passion that go into every page. The event will include a performative reading, a Q&A session, a drawing workshop, a contest with special prizes, and a signing session.

"I was enchanted by this book! The stories are original, the rhymes are harmonious, and the sense of humor is so subtle that it even challenged me, and the drawings are... delightful!" – Ilie Pană

Lumi and Ciubi have discovered magical methods to engage children with reading, and now they look forward to meeting the children of Timişoara. Don't miss this amusing and creative show, presented for the very first time at Cărtureşti Operei!
