Swannanoa resident, author, and artist, Jerald Pope, will present his new wordless novel, Owl Girl, at Malaprop’s Bookstore on Saturday, August 18, at 11 a.m.
The 78-page novel tells the fairy tale story of a young girl who is lost in the woods when a storybook owl swoops down and carries her back to its nest. The girl is raised with fledgling owls, but eventually leaves her owl family and journeys back to the human world.
Owl Girl is Pope’s 12th book and second wordless novel. The 78-page book is drawn in atmospheric colored pencil, and will be enjoyed by both children and adults.
Copies of the book will be available for signing at the event. Malaprop’s is located at 55 Haywood Street, in downtown Asheville.
