Sanpaku with Kate Gavino
August 28 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
Meet the cartoonist, Kate Gavino!
Sanpaku tells the story of Marcine, a woman fascinated with the Japanese idea of Sanpaku—that seeing the white around the iris of your eyes is a bad omen. But it’s everywhere Marcine looks—her grandmother has it, some classmates at Catholic school have it, JFK had it… Even Marcine might suffer from this odd condition. Eating a strict macrobiotic diet and meditating is supposed to help, but no matter how much Marcine wants it to, it can’t save her grandmother’s life or make her days at school any easier.
