Advance registration is REQUIRED. No tickets will be sold at the door. There are just 35 seats for this one. We don't know what demand will be like, but we recommend registering early!

The doors will open at 6:30 pm (please do NOT arrive earlier) and the evening will begin with a reception with wine. The discussion will begin promptly at 7 pm.

WonderWoman.jpgComic books and their—what? evil twin? grownup twin?—the graphic novel have both been with us for a surprisingly long time. But something has changed recently—they've moved from the cultural dark alleys into the mainstream as important media for storytelling. This may or may not be good for the art form, but it's exciting—which means it probably IS good for the art form! And we're delighted to have two wonderfully gifted practitioners of these arts to talk with us about them!



Amy Chu MBA '99 had the good sense to abandon a business career for comic books.  She's written Wonder Woman and a whole series of comics about Poison Ivy for DC, and has an imprint of her own as well, Alpha Girl Comics.

Vivek Tiwary is the writer of the New York Times best-selling graphic novel The Fifth Beatle.  In addition, he was the lead producer of the 2004 revival of A Raisin in the Sun, and co-producer of American Idiot and The Addams Family on Broadway.


There wil be a booksigning, with books available for purchase (cash only).

Special thanks to Fross Zelnick Lehrman & Zissu, and to Andy Goodwin and the Plymouth Hill Foundation.
