A Fire Story, by Brian Fies

Santa Rosa-based author and graphic artist Brian Fies and his wife were among the thousands of Californians evacuated from their homes in the middle of the night of October 8, 2017.

A Fire Story, originally published as a web comic, is his firsthand account of that night and the days that followed. It's an unflinching yet entirely journalistic depiction of their personal experiences, including losing their house and every possession that didn’t fit into the back of their car.

In the days that followed, as the fires continued to burn, A Fire Story went viral. His book is an expansion of that original webcomic, and includes environmental insight and the fire stories of his neighbors and others in his community.

Brian's words are enhanced by his own artwork in the form of a graphic novel. Brian's book and his presentation are emotional, yet celebrate individual and community resilience. Join us!
