The 2016 – 2017 William N. Skirball Writers Center Stage Series continues its series at the Maltz Performing Arts Center with an appearance by Alison Bechdel.
Acclaimed author and illustrator Alison Bechdel’s work explores themes of gender bias, homosexuality and family relationships. She is best known as the creator of the long-running comic strip Dykes to Watch Out For and the 2006 graphic memoir Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic, which garnered critical and commercial success and has since been adapted as a Tony Award-winning musical. Bechdel is a 2014 recipient of the MacArthur Genius Award. Her most recent book is the graphic memoir Are You My Mother?
Her appearance Thursday, April 20, at 7:30 p.m. at the Maltz Performing Arts Center is part of the William N. Skirball Writers Center Stage Series, sponsored by the Cuyahoga County Public Library Foundation. Case Western Reserve University is the academic partner for this series.
A limited number of student tickets will be available in person beginning at 10 a.m. Thursday. Students can show their Case Western Reserve ID at the Tinkham Veale University Center’s first floor information desk to obtain a ticket to that evening’s event.
A free shuttle will be available to transport ticketed guests to the Maltz Performing Arts Center from the Linsalata entrance of the Tinkham Veale University Center.
