The 2006 Sfar tour is off to a marvelous start. Audiences large and small around Manhattan have been thrilled to hear from the creator of THE RABBI’S CAT, VAMPIRE LOVES, KLEZMER and countless other gems. It’s been a delight to watch his characters appear live at his talks, as he reveals the way some of them are different masks of the same voice. In the picture above, Joann demonstrated how his beloved grandfather is also incarnated in Ferdinand the Vampire, reappears as the rabbi’s iconoclastic cat, and eventually takes the traits of Yaacov the young Klezmer musician who fled the Yeshiva.
Sfar has been signing and signing and signing . . . even on occasion a book by Will Eisner!
