What Follows Is True: Crescent Hotel is a graphic nonfiction that explores the stories surrounding Eureka Springs’ Crescent Hotel’s strange and tragic two years as The Baker Hospital, a Depression-Era cancer hospital. This 240-page fully-painted, graphic narrative blends oral histories, newspaper articles, and Norman Baker’s own vanity biography to examine this historical happening and the complicated determinations of yesteryear’s monsters.
Author Sean Fitzgibbon will break down why he’s drawn to unusual places, how he got involved with the infamous Crescent Hotel, and how he went about conducting research for his book.
