I'm Drawn This Way: Cartoonists on Cartooning
Monday March 13: 7:00PM – 9:00PM
Join us for a conversation about how these diverse cartoonists draw their lives and those of other women, taking risks in their art and storytelling to challenge mainstream representation of bodies, with wit, horror, and much more! We're holding this panel for the launch of California Dreamin' by Pénélope Bagieu (a nonfiction graphic biography of Mama Cass) and featuring the following amazing panelists: Natalie Andrewson (Adventure Time, The Secret Destiny of Pixie Piper), Katie Skelly (Operation Margarine), Julia Gfrörer (Laid Waste), and Whit Taylor (Ghosts). The panel discussion will be moderated by Meg Lemke of the Brooklyn Book Festival, PEN America, and MUTHA Magazine.
Buy a copy of California Dreamin' or a $15 gift card in-store at the Strand's main floor registers or at the door to attend. This event will take place in the Rare Book Room on the Strand's 3rd floor, accessible via the store elevator or at 826 Broadway.
