A comics artist's experience teaching workshops to refugees inspires a graphic memoir

 

In this encore episode of Words and Pictures, we welcome Ali Fitgerald, celebrated webcomics creator; contributor to McSweeney's, The New Yorker, and The New York Times; and author of the graphic memoir Drawn to Berlin.

Drawn to Berlin follows Ali's encounters with Syrian youth, as she teaches comics workshops at a makeshift refugee center in Germany and hears personal stories about the civil war which has been tearing apart families and communities.

This conversation took place in the KBOO studios with host S.W. Conser during Ali's appearance at the 2018 Portland Book Festival.
