Georgia Webber Presents Dumb: Living Without a Voice

Event date: 
Tuesday, October 2, 2018 - 7:30pm to 9:00pm

Toronto-based cartoonist Georgia Webber presents her new graphic memoir, Dumb: Living Without a Voice, at Charis Books and More on Tuesday, October 2nd!

Part memoir, part medical cautionary tale, Dumb tells the story of how the book’s author copes with the everyday challenges that come with voicelessness. Webber adroitly uses the comics medium to convey the practical hurdles she faced as well as the fear and dread that accompanied her increasingly lonely journey to regain her life. Her raw cartooning style, occasionally devolving into chaotic scribbles, splotches of ink, and overlapping montages, perfectly captures her frustration and anxiety. But her ordeal ultimately becomes a hopeful story. Throughout, she learns to lean on the support of her close friends, finds self-expression in creating comics, and comes to understand and appreciate how deeply her voice and identity are intertwined.

This is a Charis Circle From Margin to Center Literary Event. The suggested donation is $5.
