Satrapi is Seattle’s 2006 Read

imageUnderneath an Angouleme round-up, Fantagraphics Books co-owner Kim Thompson discusses something I'd heard in passing but haven't mentioned here, that Seattle in one of those "everybody reads the same book" programs has selected Marjane Satrapi's Persepolis books as its reading material of choice. Satrapi is the clear front-runner in my mind for first cartoonist to have their work featured in a full segment on Oprah (where I bet she'd kill), although the way these things shake out I'd probably still bet "The Field."
