This just in:  Graphic Details:  Jewish Women’s Confessional Comics in Essays and Interviews has won an Eisner Award, the comics equivalent of an Oscar!  Published by McFarland, the book’s based on the exhibit I co-curated.

Congratulations to my co-curator, Sarah Lightman, who edited the book, and to all of our contributors.
