Local author Benjamin Frisch donates a copy of "The Fun Family" to the Williamsburg Regional Library. Adult Services Librarian Emma Backman accepts the gift. In his debut graphic novel, the author presents a surreal deconstruction of childhood, adulthood, and obsession. The story focuses on fictional artist Robert Fun, his comic strip, and his family. Mr. Frisch earned his MFA in Sequential Art from Savannah College of Art and Design and participated in the international artist residency program La Maison Des Auteurs in Angoulême, France. His work has appeared on the political satire site Wonkette, National Public Radio, and in the "Graphic Canon" comics anthologies. This title will be added to the Local Authors Project collection at the library. For more information call 757.259.4042.
