Interview with Sasha Matthews, author of "Sitting Bull: A Life Story"

Last Friday, I had the chance to meet with writer Sasha Matthews at our 112th store for an exclusive interview on her debut comic book Sitting Bull: A Life Story.  Sasha Matthews is ten years old, attends fifth grade at a public school on the Upper West Side in Manhattan, and loves reading and writing comic books.  We talked for over a half-hour about how she came to write Sitting Bull, what it is about comic books that inspires her, her influences, and most of all, what she finds surprising and challenging about the comic-book writing process. 

Join our CSA!

As some of you may have noticed last year, we provided space in front of our Columbus Avenue store throught the summer and fall so that the Central Park West CSA could distribute produce that they receive from Angel Family Farm. Last year, our store also became a member of this CSA and we are doing so again this season because we really enjoyed all the fresh, local produce last year!
