Three new graphic memoirs and novels explore love, loss, and loneliness in the stories of three women: Nicole J. Georges brings a “bad dog” into her life and is forced to grapple with her own upbringing as she overcomes breakups, big moves, and personal upheavals in her memoir, Fetch: How a Bad Dog Brought Me Home. In the memoir Present, Leslie Stein collects memories and moments as she moves through life as a thirty-something in NYC. And in the graphic novel I, Parrot, from writer Deb Olin Unferth and illustrator Elizabeth Haidle, Daphne is desperate to regain custody of her son—and to keep her boss’s forty-two endangered parrots alive. With moderator Kelly Sue DeConnick (Pretty Deadly, Bitch Planet).
