In conjunction with UCSB Reads 2019 and its companion exhibition In Her Own Image, Professor Brian Donnelly is opening up his undergraduate English class to campus and the community for a discussion of comics by and about women. Please join us for a preview of the upcoming Library exhibition that will explore and celebrate female comic book creators and their works. The preview will be followed by a discussion about comics by women and about women in comics. Donnelly’s class is reading the UCSB Reads 2019 book, the graphic novel The Best We Could Do by the author Thi Bui and will have prepared some questions in advance. The audience will also have an opportunity to ask questions.
