WA – Woman Rebel Lecture

PB_tour

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.

Chris Ware, Charles Burns, and Chip Kidd appear at Seattle’s Town Hall on Monday, October 22, 2012 from 7:30 – 9:00pm.

Great Hall; enter on 8th Avenue. $5.

In the world of graphic novels—heck; in the world of publishing—superstars just don’t shine much more brightly than these two sterling comix stars: Chris Ware and Charles Burns. And—lucky us—each has a book coming out this fall. Ware, whose work recalls the greatest 20th-century cartoonists with a style and worldview utterly, unmistakably, his own, has packed his new graphic novel, Building Stories, with advanced wood-pulp technology, ambition, emotions—and exquisite artistry. And Burns, who grew up in Seattle and crafted the semi-autobiographical magnum opus Black Hole, brings The Hive, the second part of his epic masterpiece trilogy of graphic horror. Presented as part of the Town Hall Arts & Culture series with Fantagraphics.

Tickets are $5 at townhallseattle.org or 888/377-4510 and at the door beginning at 6:30 pm. Town Hall members receive priority seating.
