Alison Bechdel is the godmother of the graphic memoir. The Secret to Superhuman Strength is the latest from the author of Fun Home, which became a five-time Tony Award-winning musical, and Are You My Mother? Tackling topics from identity to transcendentalism to fitness of both the mental and physical varieties, Bechdel explores it all with her signature self-deprecating humor. Join this MacArthur “genius” for a conversation with Call Your Girlfriend co-host Ann Friedman.

This program is funded by the Alexa Fullerton Hampton ’42 Fund

Scripps Presents is an electrifying mix of storytellers and artists, policymakers and musicians—and everything in between. Founded in 2016, audiences can partake in evening conversations and performances at Scripps’ Claremont campus and venues around Southern California; @Noon, featuring new writing and scholarship; and concerts under the Levitt on the Lawn banner. Many programs are now available virtually through the College’s Vimeo and YouTube channels.

Join Scripps College as we present eye-opening, mind-bending, genre-defying tête-à-têtes with the thinkers and doers, writers and performers, whose passions and perspectives are changing the way we see the world.
