Non-Fiction Graphic Novels with Sally + A Seat at the Radical Queer Dinner Party


Graphic memoirs get a lot of love – as well they should! Still, there are other non-fiction graphic novels that deserve love too. Sally shares some of her faves and why she loves this format so much.

Stick around for an interview with Annie Krabbenschmidt and hear about their recently released memoir, Fred: An Unbecoming Woman. Rah and Annie also discuss being in a vacuum of your own people, independently publishing a book with a team of queers, and sharing personal narratives. Then join in on a small little game of “gender/not gender” at the end of the episode. 

Non-Fiction Graphic Novels Mentioned by Sally: 

Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi

Fun Home by Alison Bechdel

Brazen by Penelope Bagieu

Wake by Rebecca Hall

Feelings by Manjit Thapp

Seek You by Kristen Radtke

BONUS! Displacement by Kiku Hughes

Books Mentioned by Annie:

What We Don’t Talk About When We Talk About Fat by Aubrey Gordan
