Alison Bechdel presents The Secret to Superhuman Strength
In conversation with Roz Chast
Presented in partnership with the 92nd Street Y
Tickets $15 - $40

Fun Home author, comics giant and MacArthur Genius Award winner Alison Bechdel and beloved New Yorker cartoonist and author Roz Chast join us for a conversation about Bechdel’s new book, The Secret to Superhuman Strength. Bechdel’s quest for this elusive secret leads her not just through a succession of fitness fads and exercise exploits, but into the more immaterial realms of creativity, loss, desire, addictive behavior, mortality, the problem of the self, and, for good measure, the nature of the universe. On her circuitous path, she enlists the aid of literary figures from the Transcendentalists and the British Romantics to Jack Kerouac. This deeply-layered graphic memoir charts one person’s lifelong effort, as diverting as it is dogged, to get the mind and body on the same page. Bechdel and Chast are two of the most original and influential figures in comics. Don’t miss the chance to hear them!

All tickets include access to the event; book-bundled tickets include a signed hardcover copy of The Secret to Superhuman Strength (shipping available within the US only). Ticketholders will receive an exclusive login link preceding the event.
