By Maryann Yin 

Pénélope Bagieu has signed a deal with Macmillan’s First Second Books imprint. She will create a biographical graphic novel entitled California Dreamin’  which profiles The Mamas & The Papas singer Cass Elliot.

The publication date for Bagieu’s graphic novel has been set for March 14, 2017.

While Bagieu may not be well-known in America, she has become a well-regarded artist and blogger in her native France.

Last year, the publisher released the English-language edition of her 2010 graphic novel Cadavre Exquis (a.k.a. The Exquisite Corpse).
