"Anger is a gift!" Angry Little Girls Book Signing w/ Author Lela Lee: May 5&6, Saturday & Sunday
Excerpt from AngryLittleGirls.com:
Angry Little Girls is a comic strip about girls who are angry, disenchanted, crazy, fresh and gloomy. And it all began in 1994 when the creator of the comic strip, Lela Lee used crayola markers to draw her first character the "Angry Little Asian Girl" for a video class. After she finished the (un)animated short, she was embarrassed by the anger expressed in it, so she kept it hidden in a drawer indefinitely.
After she graduated from college, Lela worked at her parent's dry cleaners. To pass the time between the busy times of morning drop off and after work pick up, Lela made more episodes of "Angry Little Asian Girl."...
She drew during the day and in the late afternoon, she manually processed orders and walked the packages to her local post office. She began to understand that women of all ages and backgrounds felt that they were not allowed to be angry.
Observing this common sentiment, Lela expanded her brand name to "Angry Little Girls." In 2005, her first book was published and sold out 4 times over in two months. The success of the books led to a wildly popular line of tote bags sold in malls across the US and abroad. Fans wrote to tell her that Angry Little Girls' products made them feel empowered. This made Lela realize that just as drawing her comics helped her find her voice, her art on products was an important way to help women find their voice too.
Angry Little Girls buttons, books, totes, t-shirts, and chocolate will be sold at this exclusive event!
