It’s finally here… Graphic Details: Jewish Women’s Confessional Comics in Essays and Interviews is based on the exhibit I co-curated. It’s published by McFarland.

This just in: “Graphic Details: Confessional Comics by Jewish Women” to open at Ohio State University!
This just in! Graphic Details will open at the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum at Ohio State University in Columbus from March 28-July 15! The show, which I co-curated, just ended a terrific run at London’s Space Station 65 gallery. Graphic Details has thrilled audiences in San Francisco, New York, Toronto, Washington, DC, Miami Beach, and Portland. It was inspired by a story I wrote for the Forward, America’s national Jewish newspaper. The Forward is sponsoring Graphic Details.
