Market DayMarket Day
By James Sturm

Discussion led by Christopher Couch, University of Massachusetts


Cartoonist and educator Sturm turns in a tightly woven graphic novella about a shtetl craftsman whose life and livelihood shatter against the rising industrial behemoth of the early twentieth century. Mendleman is a nervous rug weaver with a child on the way. His devotion to his craft brings him to the brink of art, but when he suddenly loses his major client to modernization, he finds himself, effectively, patronless. Order from our bookstore and receive a 20% discount.
