Free and open to the public. Join us for a book discussion and signing with Columbus-based artist Raeghan Buchanan, author and illustrator of The Secret History of Black Punk: Record Zero, an illustrated roll-call for punk, post-punk, hardcore, no-wave, and experimental bands from ground zero ‘til now. A starting point for anyone curious, another reference for those who devour all genre-related things, or a cool artifact for anyone in the know. Free and open to the public.

Raeghan Buchanan is an artist in Columbus, Ohio, who makes comics focusing on Black punk culture. Buchanan founded and co-runs POCtoberArt, an online gallery that features illustrations of Black/POC punk, funk, and rock musicians to document and create a visual dialog between artists and bands. Besides doing industry work-for-hire, she has most recently created self-published books Strange Glances and the POCtober Sketchbook, as well as The Secret History of Black Punk, now available on Silver Sprocket.
