Just got back from a few talks on the east coast (hello, Spring!) The first at Rutgers University Camden was part of a big graphic novels art exhibit, “Compulsive Narratives: The Graphic Novel as Confession and Inspiration,” and the second was part of George Washington University’s “Composing Disability: Diagnosis, Interrupted” symposium, an interesting array of talks on topics including sex and disability, how the DSM is used and misused by lawyers, and the different ways personal stories can be told. I also wandered around on the Mall, and saw an fascinating exhibit about creation and destruction at the Smithsonian’s Hirshhorn Art Museum. (Note to self: COME BACK TO DC AND VISIT THE MUSEUMS.)
Signing books at Rutgers U!
