Join The Loft’s virtual Wordplay Festival for a conversation between Alison Bechdel and Cheryl Strayed about Bechdel’s new graphic memoir, The Secret to Superhuman Strength.
The long and complicated history of workout crazes in the US—from the Thighmaster, to Nordictrack, to Peloton and Soul Cycle—have created a culture that chases fads over facts. And Alison Bechdel, iconic, award-winning graphic memoirst, has not been immune to the promises. But in her quest for superhuman strength, Bechdel’s journey leads her to another muscle: the heart. And then turns towards the ultimate flex: letting her brain guide her. Join her and fellow soul-seeker Cheryl Strayed as they discuss Bechdel’s latest graphic memoir.
The Loft’s Virtual Wordplay is presented by St. Catherine University and Star Tribune.
