Alison Bechdel at HVCC

cartoonist Alison Bechdel

Cartoonist/author Alison Bechdel will be at Hudson Valley Community College March 23 for a talk.

Bechdel is, of course, the author of Fun Home, the award-winning graphic memoir about her childhood. It was later adapted into a Tony-winning stage musical. She's also the creator of the long running comic strip Dykes to Watch Out For, from which the Bechdel test emerged. She's also won a McArthur "genius" grant.

The event at HVCC is Friday, March 23 from 11 am-1 pm in the Bulmer Telecommunications Center Auditorium, and will include a talk, Q&A, and book signing. It's free and open to the public.
