Cathy Guisewite, creator of the Cathy comic strip which ran in nearly 1,400 newspapers for 34 years, will talk about her new book, Fifty Things That Aren’t My Fault on Wednesday, April 3, 2019 at 7 PM.
In her first collection of essays, Guisewite calls herself a woman in “the panini generation,” taking care of her teenage daughter in California children and flying cross country to care for her aging parents in Florida.
“In the comic strip, I was just a daughter,” Guisewite said in a Washington Post interview. “In this book, I write a lot about [toggling as] a mother-daughter-mother-daughter.”
Tickets are $30 and include a copy of the book, which will be published April 2. Guisewite will sign books after the talk.
