Lucy Knisley (Relish: My Life in the Kitchen)

Saturday, April 13, 5 pm, at Books Inc. Berkeley (1760 4th St.)

Monday, April 15, 6-7 pm, at Omnivore Books (3885a Cesar Chavez St.)

Comics artist Knisley (French Milk) has developed a cult following on the Web for her insightful examinations of twentysomething life and the process of growing up. Knisley also loves food, and she comes from a family with a culinary pedigree: her mother was a chef and her father a gourmet before either was hip, and she grew up in Manhattan restaurant kitchens before a move to upstate New York. In her new graphic memoir, she examines how food has affected her at all stages of her life, from fancy organic fare to ramen and McDonald's fries.

Caroline Paul & Wendy MacNaughton (Lost Cat: A True Story of Love, Desperation, and GPS Technology)

Tuesday, April 9, 7:30 pm, at The Booksmith (1644 Haight St.)

SF locals Paul and MacNaughton were already struggling to help Paul deal with injuries sustained in a plane crash when their beloved cat, Tibia, went missing. After five weeks in the wilderness, Tibia suddenly and nonchalantly returned, leading the couple to wonder where he'd ventured in his time away. So they outfitted him with a GPS tracker and a cat camera, and followed him on his adventures. The result is this reflection, written by Paul and illustrated by MacNaughton, on the deep relationships we have with our pets and coming to terms with the fact that we'll never truly understand what they're thinking.
