Club meeting to discuss graphic novels

Calling all Marvel mavens, DC devotees, and independent graphic novel enthusiasts: the Comic Book Club wants you!

Join host Greg Paziuk for a free, friendly and open discussion of Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic, on Friday, November 15, at the Leddy Library. The 2006 graphic memoir by American writer Alison Bechdel, author of the comic strip Dykes to Watch Out For, has been both a popular and critical success, and spent two weeks on the New York Times bestseller list.

It chronicles the author’s early life in rural Pennsylvania, focusing on her complex relationship with her father. The book addresses themes of sexual orientation, gender roles, suicide, dysfunctional family life, and the role of literature in understanding oneself and one’s family.

The newly-formed Comic Book Club meets in the library’s comfy seating area, on the first floor behind Williams Café, from 12:15 to 1 p.m.

All texts featured by the club are available for loan at Leddy Library and the Windsor Public Library, and for purchase at Rogues Gallery Comics and Border City Comics. Contact Paziuk at for more information.
