As always, watch your screens for images as they are mentioned, and in this episode I snuck in some of the “Pets love the Graphic Medicine Manifesto” images so keep an eye out for those!
Also in this episode, a shout out to the Ypsilanti District Library’s Graphic Medicine collection. In this town just outside of Ann Arbor, Michigan, the awesome librarians won an Eisner Award to curate the largest known public collection of Graphic Medicine titles, and designed an innovative program of themed tote bags for community members to check out.
Coincidentally, I’m in Ann Arbor as I type this, having attended the library’s public event with Roz Chast (Can’t We Talk About Something More Pleasant). Great to see everyone from the library last night, and to have the opportunity to meet Roz Chast.
The librarians asked me to sign copies of the Manifesto, which was super cool, because as they pointed out, it’s not every day that they allow someone to write in a library book!
Due to the length of this week’s panel, there’s no “What Are You Reading” segment in the podcast this week, but it will return next week’s episode, which will feature the conference opening keynote address by Jared Gardner.
