Best-selling author and illustrator Raina Telgemeier thrilled a beyond-capacity crowd last night at the launch of her new graphic novel, Ghosts, at the University of Minnesota’s Cowles Auditorium.
A capacity crowd of 250, children and parents, were joined by about 100 more next door watching on closed-circuit television to her one-hour presentation. All had a chance to meet her in person afterwards at the book signing.
