Bechdel goes to college
Alison Bechdel reports in her blog, "I just finished a two-day visit at Miami Dade College, sponsored by the Florida Center for the Literary Arts, where I talked about Fun Home to a staggering array of classes, from Art to English to Human Growth and Development to The Graphic Novel."
No fair, why couldn’t there have been Graphic Novel classes back in ancient times when I was in college?
Bechdel also spoke at the Gay-Straight Alliance meeting (whence this photo comes) and did a reading at the Broward County Public Library, which she details as one of her more interesting experiences in the Fun Home tour. And speaking of libraries, she’s very happy to hear that the Marshall (MO) PL has voted to return Fun Home (as well as Craig Thompson’s Blankets) to their shelves, as are we.
