Cartoonist Chester Brown appears at McNally Robinson Booksellers on Tuesday, May 3, 2016 at 7:00 p.m.
Speaking & Signing Mary Wept Over the Feet of Jesus: Prostitution and religious obedience in the Bible (Drawn & Quarterly). Co-presented by The Winnipeg International Writers Festival as part of our collaborative Spring Literary Series.
Chester Brown (author of the bestselling Paying for It: A comic-strip memoir of being a john) continues his thoughts on sex work by retelling nine stories from Hebrew scriptures and the Christian New Testament. Mary Wept Over the Feet of Jesus forms a fascinating and startling thesis about biblical representations of prostitution.
