This might be a double post for some people, but Eleanor’s doing a bunch of signings in New York in a couple days, for her new “TOON Book,” Stinky. If you’re in the area, stop on by!

From the TOON Books press release:

TOON Books are a collection of hardcover, full-color comics for early readers published by New Yorker Art Editor Françoise Mouly with Series Advisor Art Spiegelman. The imprint launched in Spring 2008 and has received near-universal praise.

Following is a schedule of events planned to mark the debuts of Stinky and Mo and Jo:

Friday, September 5, 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm
• Desert Island, 540 Metropolitan Ave., Brooklyn, NY 11211
Eleanor Davis & Dean Haspiel—reading, signing and launch party!

Saturday, September 6, 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
• McNally Jackson NYC, 52 Prince Street, New York, NY 10012
Eleanor Davis & Dean Haspiel, introduced by Françoise Mouly and Art Spiegelman. Please note: Mr. Spiegelman will not sign books at this event.

Monday, September 8, 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
• Jim Hanley’s Universe, 4 West 33rd Street, New York, NY 10001
Eleanor Davis & Dean Haspiel—reading and signing.

I’m going with her! This’ll be my first visit to NY, so if you know any can’t-be missed restaurants (preferably cheap,) museums, bookstores, comics-related things, or general tourist-type activities, let us know!
