Origin Stories w JJK: a new web show


The first episode of Origin Stories w JJK will premiere on Thursday evening.
Raina Telgemeier's Comics
will be my first guest!
From PW:
Krosoczka decided on a 10-episode series, featuring artists like Raina Telgemeier, Jerry Craft, Raúl the Third, Gene Luen Yang, Mike Curato, Lucy Knisley, Maia Kobabe, Ngozi Ukazu, and Robin Ha, with each episode including a roughly 20-minute interview, then a 10-minute readers’ theater featuring the guest’s work. “This is longform, somewhere between Jimmy Fallon and Terry Gross,” Krosoczka said.

USA Today + No Kid Hungry

I am thrilled to be joining USA Today on September 17th for a LIVE storytelling event to benefit No Kid Hungry. Learn how you can be in the virtual audience for this special event by clicking here!

Krosoczka will share his personal story with a national audience at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT Sept. 17 as part of the Storytellers Project’s virtual show, “School Stories,” a benefit for No Kid Hungry. The Storytellers Project, part of the USA TODAY Network, produces shows in 20 cities across the United States, but pivoted to virtual shows in April because of stay-at-home orders.

Because of the pandemic, this year, one in four students are expected to face food insecurity, up from one in seven last year, according to No Kid Hungry.
