Lincoln Peirce at Burlington Barnes & Noble

October 16, 2013 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Lincoln Peirce returns to your Barnes & Noble with his newest release, Big Nate: I Can’t Take It! Join Lincoln for a fun-filled event complete with a reading, drawings, and Q&A. Be one of the lucky ones who takes one of Lincoln’s works of art home!

Big Nate. He thinks big. He talks big. He acts big. And Big Nate: I Can’t Take It, featuring our mischievous middle-school hero, is big fun. The second collection of all-color Sunday Big Nate cartoons!

Life can be stressful for Nate Wright. At school, Mrs. Godfrey makes every day a nightmare. At home, he’s stuck between Ellen, his incredibly annoying older sister, and Dad, perhaps the most clueless parent of all time. And don’t get him started on Gina, the ultimate teacher’s pet, or Artur, the unassuming exchange student who bests him at every turn. It’s enough to make even a can-do kid like Nate scream: “I CAN’T TAKE IT!”

Lincoln Peirce has been drawing the Big Nate comic strip for more than 20 years. Born in Ames, Iowa, Peirce grew up in Durham, New Hampshire. As a kid, he began creating his own strips in the sixth grade. Peirce taught high school in New York City and has created several animated pilots for Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon. He lives in Portland, Maine, with his family.
