Book Club

The Statesman Words and Pictures Book Club

As Harvey Pekar said, "Comics are words and pictures, You can do anything with words and pictures." The Statesman Words and Pictures Book Club explores the ever-widening world of graphic novels, from the realistic to the fantastic, all hosted by Austin American-Statesman books and culture reporter Joe Gross. Don't expect too many tights 'n' fights, but do expect some of the most powerful, evocative literature around. This month's title is Fun Home by Alison Bechdel.
