Vanessa Davis’ new book, Make Me A Woman will confirm her spot as one of the leading cartoonists and humorists of her generation. No story is too painful to tell-like how much she enjoyed fat camp-nor too personal-like her stories of growing up Jewish in Florida. Using her sweet but biting wit, Davis effortlessly carves out a wholly original and refreshing niche in two well-worn territories: autobio comics and the Jewish identity. Using beautiful watercolors, refreshing honesty and humor, her comics are sure to make an immediate impression.
This event is co-hosted by Tablet Magazine, a daily online magazine of Jewish ideas, news and culture. Marjorie Ingall, who writes about parenting for Tablet, will speak with Vanessa about her new book.
