The hilarious Allie Brosh of the beloved blog and forthcoming book Hyperbole and a Half: Unfortunate Situations, Flawed Coping Mechanisms, Mayhem, and Other Things That Happened will speak, show slides, and converse with cartoonist Ellen Forney. “Here’s a rough analogy: David Sedaris sets out to write a graphic memoir, but decides to use the MS Paint application on his computer rather than hire an artist….[Brosh’s] naïve art plays brilliantly against dark comic themes.” –(Michael Humphrey, True/Slant). The program will open with brief readings by local writer Michael Overa and his Writers in the Schools student from TOPS K-8.
