Tuesday, May 4, 7:00 PM
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.

Wednesday, May 5, 7:00 PM ET
Casey Wilson presents The Wreckage of My Presence
In conversation with Ziwe
Tickets $5 - $40
Actress, writer, director, and podcaster Casey Wilson launches her long-anticipated first book, The Wreckage of My Presence! At once thoughtfully constructed and radically, messily forthright and full of feeling, Wilson’s collection of personal essays explores the joys and vagaries of modern-day womanhood and motherhood, introduces readers to the not-quite-typical family that made Wilson who she is, and persuasively argues that lowbrow pop culture is the perfect lens through which to examine human nature. Reading The Wreckage of My Presence is like spending time with a close friend—a deeply passionate, full-tilt, joyous, excessive, compulsive, shameless, hungry-for-it-all, loyal, cheerleading friend. Wilson talks about her new book with comedian, writer, and actress Ziwe at this exclusive virtual event!
All tickets include access to the event; book-bundled tickets include a hardcover copy of The Wreckage of My Presence. Note pickup and shipping options when purchasing tickets (shipping available within the US only).
