Author & Movie Event with Joe Ciardiello
Thursday, September 26th, 6:30 pm
The Doylestown Bookshop & the County Theater are pleased to present an author event with Joe Ciardiello for his book, A FISTFUL OF DRAWINGS, a gorgeous graphic memoir that sees the author weave together his Italian family history and the mythology of the American West while paying homage to the classic Westerns of the '50s and '60s.

After the discussion, the County Theater will be screening Sergio Leone’s first entry in the iconic “Man With No Name Trilogy,” A FISTFUL OF DOLLARS, which features Clint Eastwood’s first leading role.

ABOUT THE BOOK
brock clarke cover  image In this gorgeous graphic memoir, Joe Ciardiello weaves together his Italian family history and the mythology of the American West while paying homage to the classic Westerns of the '50s and '60s. Ciardiello's sinuous ink line and vivid watercolors illuminate the oversized characters that dominated the cinematic American West--featuring John Ford, John Wayne, Clint Eastwood, Claudia Cardinale, Sophia Loren, and many more. A paean to Hollywood, a love letter to the Western, and a tribute to its Italian influences.
