Join American cartoonist and author Alison Bechdel, MC Carole Beu in Auckland, Sunday 16 March for the session ‘A Night with Alison Bechdel, Drawing from Life’.

Renowned feminist cartoonist will be in New Zealand on International Women’s Day, March 8th.

Bechdel will be performing in Wellington and heading to Auckland a week later to share insights into her newest graphic novel “Are You My Mother? A Comic Drama”.

Bechdel’s memoirs have been described as beautiful, witty, absorbing and Kirkus has given Are You My Mother: A Comic Drama a starred review, calling it ”a psychologically complex, ambitious, illuminating successor to the author’s graphic-memoir masterpiece”.

Come along next Sunday for an investigation into her intensely personal and often political work, followed by questions and book signings.

Set to be a great community event and fundraiser for the Auckland Women’s Centre, ticket sales will fund crucial support services to women in Auckland.

Alison Bechdel will be at Freeman’s Bay Community Centre on Sunday the 16 from 7pm. Tickets are $25 from the Women’s Bookshop and the Auckland Women’s Centre.
