Each year the Dedica Festival in northern Italy celebrates a single writer. Last year they invited Nadine Gordimer and this year they will raise a glass or two of Chianti to Paul Auster. The graphic novel version of Auster's "City of Glass" has sold out of three separate editions in Italy so the organizers of the event have also invited Paul Karasik to Dedica at the end of March. For the first time Karasik's original panel-by-panel breakdowns of City of Glass will be exhibited and a limited edition of facsimile copies will be sold. Attendees will have the opportunity to hear Auster and Karasik discuss the process of the creation of the graphic novel.
