Thien Pham 

When: Thu., July 31, 7 p.m. 2014
Last summer, the Express declared Sumo, the second graphic novel by Oakland’s own Thien Pham, to be “one of those rare novels — graphic or not — that builds and blooms and breaks apart so beautifully and so cleverly that you’ll find yourself thinking about it days and weeks and months after.” That’s all still true, of course, and now’s your chance to see Pham read from and discuss the book — which follows a football player as he, you guessed it, decides to pursue sumo wrestling — himself at Barnes and Noble (5604 Bay Street, Emeryville). Trust us: This one’s not to be missed.
