Cartoonist Ellen Forney appears in conversation with Kriota Willberg at the Strand Book Store on Wednesday, May 23rd at 7:30 PM to discuss Rock Steady: Brilliant Advice from My Bipolar Life, the anticipated companion volume to her bestselling graphic memoir Marbles: Mania, Depression, Michelangelo, and Me.
Ellen Forney was the 2012 recipient of The Stranger Genius Award for Literature as well as the winner of the National Association for the Advancement of Psychoanalysis 2013 Gradiva Award.
Kriota Willberg uses comics, needlework, historical studies, bioethics, and her experiences from her career as a massage therapist and health science educator to explore body/science narratives. Combining this history with her background as an artist and educator, she has been creating comics and teaching artists about injury prevention through panels, workshops, and a series of mini comics, now combined with additional materials into Draw Stronger (Uncivilized Books, April 2018).
