Following the jam session, acclaimed graphic novelist Phoebe Gloeckner will talk about her art and career. Her book, The Diary of a Teenage Girl (2002), was praised as “one of the most brutally honest, shocking, tender, beautiful portrayals of growing up female in America.” R. Crumb called her story Minnie’s Third Love one of the “comic book masterpieces of all time.” Gloeckner continues to experiment with technology and the form of the novel, and is currently working on a book about a family in Ciudad Juárez, Mexico. She is an associate professor in the Penny W. Stamps School of Art and Design at the University of Michigan.
