Please note that the date for this special event has been moved to Saturday 11/8 due to a scheduling conflict at USC. It was originally scheduled for Friday 11/7.
Join USC Visions and Voices for an evening with award-winning graphic novelists Marjane Satrapi and Chris Ware, two artists whose difficult, beautiful storytelling combines visual pleasure with subject matter of the highest seriousness. Marjane Satrapi’s gripping, nuanced and internationally best-selling graphic memoir Persepolis recounts her youth in Iran amid the Islamic Revolution and the Iran-Iraq War. In works like Jimmy Corrigan: The Smartest Kid on Earth and Building Stories, Chris Ware uses spare text and drawings the New York Times calls “delicate and achingly beautiful” to redefine storytelling and the book form itself. This event marks a rare opportunity to see these two critically acclaimed artists—and longtime mutual admirers—in conversation about their own and each other’s work. The discussion will be moderated by USC professors Dana Johnson and Jeff Solomon.
