Graphic novelist Alison Bechdel will speak at 6 p.m. on March 4, in 129ABC HUB-Robeson Center, as part of the ongoing University Libraries' Graphic Novels Series and in cooperation with the Department of Women's Studies and other departments in the College of the Liberal Arts.

Bechdel is author of the critically acclaimed "Fun Home," which was called "one of the very best graphic novels ever" in Booklist, a publication of the American Library Association. Her syndicated comic strip Dykes to Watch Out For (DTWOF) is a cultural institution for many, as Bechdel redefines race and gender roles while taking aim at some of the most controversial topics of the day.

The event is cosponsored by Penn State's English department; Graduate Student Association; LGBTA Student Resource Center; Library Learning Services; University Archives; Pennsylvania Center for the Book; University Libraries' Charles W. Mann Jr. Lecture in the Book Arts; UPAC; Women's Studies; and Women's Studies Graduate Student Association.
