Amelia Rules!, The Dumbest Idea Ever!, Of Gray Comics and Stories

Jimmy Gownley developed a love of comics at an early age when his mother read Peanuts collections to him. By the age of 15, he was self-publishing his first book, Of Gray Comics and Stories; the series ran 16 issues and enjoyed cult success. He followed this with Amelia Rules!, which became a critical and fan favorite, earning Gownley 13 Eisner nominations and 6 Harvey nominations. It has been named a Junior Library Guild selection four times, been translated into several languages, and won the 2007 Cybil award for best graphic novel. His latest book, The Dumbest Idea Ever!, is a memoir about his experiences as a teenage cartoonist. Gownley travels around the country talking to students, teachers, and librarians about the creative process and the art of cartooning. He has been an Artist-In-Residence at the Museum of Cartoon Art and The Charles M. Schulz Museum and Research Center.
