Comics in illness the topic of the next First Fridays Lecture

The Department of Humanities at Penn State College of Medicine will welcome Katie Green to the November First Fridays Lecture, “SHOW AND TELL: The Power of Comics in Illness,” at noon Nov. 7 in Room C2860, the Anesthesia Library on the second floor of the BMR Building, 500 University Drive, Hershey.

Green will discuss how and why she created a graphic novel memoir to explore her experience with -- and recovery from -- an eating disorder and sexual abuse. 

Green is an artist and illustrator living in England. She studied biology before specializing in illustration. She is author of the memoir “Lighter than My Shadow,” and publishes a bi-monthly zine, The Green Bean. Her projects can be found on her website.
