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.
