April, 2020 - I think I'm going to shut From My Bookshelf down for a while; maybe for good. I've been putting this together for quite a few years now and it's starting to feel a bit more of a chore. I'll keep my Goodreads connected, but with the state of the world right now, I just want to read without worrying about making sure I post something about it. Who knows - when the world starts to make some semblance of sense again, I may start actively posting here again. Until then, as always, happy reading!

Dan Mishkin & Jerzy Drozd stopped by Schuler Books this evening to promote the release of their new book, The Warren Commission Report: A Graphic Investigation into the Kennedy Assassination. I thoroughly enjoyed this discussion. These guys clearly did their research when preparing the book. They discussed their storytelling process, how they were able to show multiple points of view from different parties and their various and differing recollections of the assassination. They are also able to tell the story in past tense, present-past tense, and present tense, and while it sounds confusing as hell, it actually works seamlessly. I found the entire talk fascinating. I would definitely like to see more collaborations of this sort between these guys.
