Black text at the top reads "October 7 at 6:00 p.m." An orange line is directly underneath, followed by larger black text that reads "Author talk & book signing with Cindy Rizzo." A picture of Cindy Rizzo, a white woman with short brown hair and glasses, is in the center of the graphic. Cindy wears a blazer and an open pinstriped dress shirt. To the left of the photo is a rounded rectangle with text that reads "Hosted by the Library at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center." Underneath is the center's address. In the lower left corner is the center's logo in black. The book cover features a woman lying on grass facing up. To her left is a map of the United States with scissors at the bottom. The map has the top half of the country shaded in blue and the bottom half in red. The book's title "The Papercutter" and author are at the top, engraved on what seem to be metal blades.]
