Hi, Minneapolis! The sun is shining (says the internet), Woman Rebel is finally available in stores, and comics legend Peter Bagge is in your city. The award-winning author is kicking off a multi-city tour at Magers & Quinn tonight, Wednesday October 16th, at 7pm. Did you know that today is, thanks in large part to Margaret Sanger, the 97th anniversary of Planned Parenthood? 97! To celebrate, Planned Parenthood Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota will have a table at tonight's event.
Slate's recent review of Woman Rebel on Monday, but I have to add this line from the article: "The book is a fascinating testament to the ability of one person to make a difference in this world, as long as she’s a huge pain in everyone’s ass." Margaret Sanger was an infuriating, inspiring bad-ass, and Peter Bagge definitely captures that in his book. Peter also found time to illustrate all of October's Slate Book Review, and you can check all of those pieces out here.
See you tonight, Minneapolis. Why not join the Facebook event and invite all your friends?
