Bonus #2: Thur 3 Apr, 8 pm Marvin Center Amphitheater
Note: Before the event, you should read some excerpts from Marbles. There is one on The Guardian.com, another on NPR.org, and yet another on Amazon.com.
To earn your bonus, attend the event, take notes, and post 100-200 words here (adding comments to this post), discussing any aspect of how she uses the visual medium. Reply to the prompt below, but also to prior peer’s comments, carrying on a conversation.
How does Forney think about the relationship between the words and the images she draws, and how she composes them on the page? What do the visual elements say that words cannot (or not in the same way)? In other words, why is this a comic book (graphic novel) instead of a prose novel or memoir?
