In celebration of Will Eisner Week, Sophie Yanow, CCS fellow and cartoonist from Northern California whose work fluctuates between the macro and the micro, will talk about her approach to nonfiction, autobiography, and poetry in comics making. In the fall of 2011 she moved to Montreal, Quebec where she joined the well regarded Colosse comics collective. In Situ, a collection of journal comics documenting her transition to Montreal, won wide acclaim in US and Canada. Her work has also frequently appeared online on Top Shelf Comix, Te Rumpus, the Nib, and many others. Her latest book, War of Streets and Houses published by Uncivilized Books, was nominated for an Ignatz Award for ‘Outstanding Graphic Novel’ in 2014.
