Emiko Superstar by Mariko Tamaki
I'm a big fan of Mariko Tamaki's books, so I was super excited when she agreed to do a short Q&A with me for the Word Out! Blog about her latest graphic novel Emiko Superstar. Mariko is also the author of the highly acclaimed graphic novel Skim, illustrated by her cousin Jillian Tamaki.
Margaret (M): What was your inspiration for Emiko? Is "the Factory" based on any real life experiences?
