Self-Confessed: The Inappropriately Intimate Comics of Alison Bechdel

Feb 21, 2018
7:00 pm to 8:30 pm
Ira Allen Chapel

From her long-running comic strip Dykes to Watch Out For, to her family memoirs Fun Home and Are You My Mother?, Bechdel has exploredin graphic detail the overlap between the personal and the political, the domestic and the global. This evening Bechdel talks about how her cartooning has evolved over the past four decades, and attempts to explain the strange alchemy that happens when one draws and writes at the same time.
