Santa Monica Public Library Presents- Cartoon Self With Charles Hatfield

Santa Monica Public Library presents The Cartoon Self with Charles Hatfield on Saturday, March 11, 2017, at 2:00 pm in the Main Library’s Multipurpose Room, 601 Santa Monica Blvd.

 

Join Charles Hatfield, Professor of English at California State University, Northridge and head of the interdisciplinary [email protected] program, for an illustrated talk about the roots and branches of the burgeoning genre of autobiographical comics, or graphic memoir, which includes Art Spiegelman, KeijiNakazawa, Marjane Satrapi, and many other celebrated artists. This presentation is one of many events revolving around this year’s Santa Monica Reads selection, Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic by Alison Bechdel.

 

Santa Monica Reads, the popular community reading program that has invited Santa Monicans to read and discuss the same book together for the better part of a generation now, runs from February 25 through March 30. This year’s featured title is Alison Bechdel’s graphic memoir Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic, a moving comics-format depiction of the author’s youthful coming of age and her complicated relationship with her father. To learn more about Santa Monica Reads, and see a listing of all of the book discussions and special events, visit http://smpl.org/FunHome.
