In person at The Weitzman in Philadelphia

Join us as we welcome the National Jewish Book Award winning cartoonist and graphic novelist, Liana Finck, and celebrate the release of her new book entitled “Let There Be Light: The Real Story of Her Creation”. In this graphic novel, Finck reimagines the story of Genesis with God as a woman, Abraham as a resident of New York City, and Rebekah as a robot, among many other delightful twists. The program’s conversation will cover her award winning contributions to The New Yorker, the book, her instagram account with over half a million followers, her creative process and more.

The author will sign books after the program.
