Congratulations to Rokudenashiko and Mike on their newest manko progeny, Leon! Baby and Mama are healthy and happy. What more could we ask for.
We’re so excited for Nashiko’s big year, which includes a quick tour to New York in May for the PEN World Voices Festival. Rokudenashiko will be speaking in conversation with sculptor Ali Asgar on “Exposure: Gender Sex and Power” May 2, 9pm (Tickets Available Here). Don’t miss this opportunity to meet the new Manko Family!
Meanwhile, Rokudenashiko continues to fight an obscenity conviction in Appeals Court. Her next trial date is in April. Keep her in your thoughts/prayers/rituals/blessings/spells/conversation! We can use all the juujuu you can afford, for her LA Times Book Prize (Graphic Novels) nomination, too!
You can find “What Is Obscenity” in a bookstore near you, including our own webstore. :B
