Peter Bagge & James Sturm with Paul Constant
Joining us this evening are two graphic novelists published by Drawn and Quarterly. Seattle cartoonist Peter Bagge, who most recently visited us to speak about two previous biographical portraits of groundbreaking 20th century women: Woman Rebel: The Margaret Sanger Story and Fire!! The Zora Neale Hurston Story, returns with Credo: The Rose Wilder Lane Story. Rose Wilder Lane, daughter of Laura Ingalls Wilder and champion of the Little House on the Prairie series, was a feminist, a war correspondent and a mother of American libertarianism.
Also on tonight’s program is Vermont writer James Sturm, cartoonist and author of Off Season, which chronicles one couple's divisive separation during Bernie Sanders's loss to Hillary Clinton, Clinton's loss to Donald Trump, and the disorienting months that followed. James Sturm, the other of the classic graphic novel, The Golem’s Mighty Swing and of Market Day, is one of the founders of the Center for Cartoon Studies in White River junction Vermont.
Peter Bagge and James Sturm appear in conversation with Paul Constant of the Seattle Review of Books.
