Kavalier, Clay, and the library
Comic book artists moonlighting as musicians? According to Andrew Farago, curator of San Francisco's Cartoon Art Museum, that's just one of many true-life stories that inspired "The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay."
On Tuesday, Oct. 26, Mr. Farago will present the facts behind the fiction, starting at 7 p.m. in the downstairs meeting room at the Menlo Park Library at 800 Alma St. in the Civic Center.
