Peter Bagge appears with Cienna Madrid on Thursday, September 26, 2013 from 7:30 – 9:00PM!

Press Release:

You might know the story of Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger—but chances are you’ve never heard (or seen!) anyone tell it like Seattle alternative-comics master Peter Bagge. The Harvey Award-winning author of the comic series Hate launches Women Rebel, his graphic-novel biography of social and political maverick Sanger, in a slideshow focusing on her activism and how the book came together, with original sample pages. Then, in conversation with Cienna Madrid of The Stranger, Bagge expands on the life of the birth-control activist, educator, nurse, mother, and protofeminist, making Sanger whole and human and showing how her flaws fueled her fiery activism just as much as her compassionate nature did.

Presented by: Presented by: Town Hall as part of the Arts & Culture series, with Elliott Bay Book Company, Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest, and Drawn & Quarterly. Sponsored by City Arts.
Tickets: $5.
Doors open: 6:30 pm.
