Graphic Literature as Autobiography

Mondays, March 30-May 4
from 6:30-8:30 p.m. (six sessions)

In this Delve seminar, we’ll explore autobiographies executed in the medium of comics, and in doing so sample from a few of the world’s most respected illustrator-storytellers. In turn, Lynda Barry, Alison Bechdel, Marjane Satrapi, Art Spiegelman, and Yoshihiro Tatsumi will each inspire and challenge participants as we examine graphic literature’s unique perspective on created identity.

READING LIST:
ONE! HUNDRED! DEMONS! by Lynda Barry
FUN HOME by Alison Bechdel

MAUS by Art Spiegelman:
A DRIFTING LIFE by Yoshihiro Tatsumi
