Join award-winning cartoonist Guy Delisle (Pyongyang, Jerusalem) for the launch of his highly anticipated, non-fiction page-turner. He’ll be interviewed by Simon Ostrovsky, investigative reporter at CNN.Set in the Caucasus region in 1997, Hostage tells the true story of Doctors Without Borders administrator Christophe Andre who was held captive for over three months. Recounting his day-to-day survival while conveying the psychological effects of solitary confinement, Delisle’s storytelling doesn’t just show André’s experiences, but brings you into the room alongside him. Hostage is a thoughtful, intense, and undeniably moving graphic novel that takes a profound look at what drives our will to survive in the darkest of moments.
