Program Description

About this event:

Adults are invited to celebrate their love of this diverse and subversive medium. 

Registration is required, and books will be provided for participants. (Those who have their own copy are welcome to participate as well, just note when you sign up that you won't need the library to provide one.)

This month, in honor of Will Eisner Week, we will be reading the Eisner Award-winning Brazen: Rebel Ladies Who Rocked the World by Pénélope Bagieu:

Throughout history and across the globe, one characteristic connects the daring women of Brazen: their indomitable spirit. Against overwhelming adversity, these remarkable women raised their voices and changed history.

With her one-of-a-kind wit and dazzling drawings, celebrated graphic novelist Pénélope Bagieu profiles the lives of these feisty female role models, some world-famous, some little known. From Nellie Bly to Mae Jemison or Josephine Baker to Naziq al-Abid, the stories in this comic biography are sure to inspire the next generation of rebel ladies.

 

This book discussion will be offered via Zoom. Participants registered here will receive an email with details on how to access the meeting the day before the event. If you have any questions, please contact Sophia McKissick at smckissick@tcpl.org.
