I hope to see you there!
I’m so proud that PEN America has republished Lines Drawn here. PEN America “stands at the intersection of literature and human rights to protect open expression in the United States and worldwide.”
Lines Drawn is a “narrative response by a collective of parents and teachers using comics and graphic pieces to illustrate how they, as adults, feel and try to take responsibility for the care and safety of children and youth in an age of continued school shootings.”
In case you missed it, Huff Post Editor Caroline Bologna wrote about my more recent parenting comics. Check it out!
This is my contribution to “Lines Drawn: Parents and Teacher’s Who’ve Had Enough” (Part 1), a comics project inspired by student activists, organized by Meredith Li-Vollmer, edited by Mita Mahato, and published by Mutha Magazine.
This one ran in last week’s Real Change newspaper:
And, below, with introduction by Comics 4 Health Coverage: “Legions of volunteers made it possible to provide free medical, vision, and dental care to over 4,300 patients in 4 days during the Seattle/King County Clinic in 2017. Amy Camber talked to a volunteer interpreter and her comic is featured this week in the International Examiner!”
Last Fall, I was part of a group of local comic artists who collected stories from patients and volunteers at the free, four-day, volunteer run Seattle/King County Clinic. It was an incredible experience and I’m so grateful for everyone who took the time to talk with me. Here’s the first comic (which was actually my last interview), published in Real Change this week.
It was truly a dream come true to make something for these incredible women. As someone who loves watching sports (Go Reign! Go Storm!) but cannot stomach the sexism, racism, and toxic masculinity endemic to sports culture, finding this feminist sports podcast was a revelation. Check it out!
