3pm – 4 pm Miriam Katin signing at D&Q booths.
Mundane/Profane/Profound: What We Draw About When We Draw Comics. Gag cartoonists and graphic novelists talk about the weird, wonderful, and sometimes shocking choices they make in their craft. Ben Katchor (Hand-Drying in America) offers urban fables where daily details lead to socio/political revelations. Lisa Hanawalt’s sexy/snarky one-pagers in My Dirty Dumb Eyes hinge on the vulnerability of showing it all. Miriam Katin’s thoughtful, witty memoir Letting it Go explores profound loss and forgiveness in the context of teeth whitening and stomach troubles. Ulli Lust’s punk travelogue This is the Last Day of the Rest of Your Life lays bare body and soul. Moderated by Anne Ishii, translator, The Passion of Gengoroh Tagame. Featuring screen projection.
Special thanks to Goethe-Institut New York.
3 – 4 pm Lisa Hanawalt and Miriam Katin signing at D+Q booths 141 + 142
