This just in: “Graphic Details: Confessional Comics by Jewish Women” heads to London this fall!

Graphic Details:  Confessional Comics by Jewish Women will open at London’s Space Station 65 gallery in September!

Graphic Details, which I co-curated, is inspired by a story I wrote for the Forward.  We’ve had successful runs in New York, San Francisco, Toronto, Washington, DC, Portland, and Miami Beach.

Keep an eye out for the Graphic Details book, to be published by McFarland in August.

The Forward, America’s national Jewish newspaper, is sponsoring Graphic Details.  Read about the show in the New York Daily News.
