Lily Renee & Trina Robbins at MOCCA in NY - tonight (now)

Apologies for this late listing, but I have a double excuse.

(1) I didn't realize the event was happening until Tuesday.

(2) I have a bit of a virus, so I haven't been able to spend much time blogging lately.

Meet comic book pioneers Lily Renée Wilheim and Trina Robbins as they discuss and sign an extraordinary new book.

Lily Renée, Escape Artist is the inspirational story about the remarkable life of Lily Renée Wilheim and her tenacious escape from Nazi occupation to become one of the leading female comic books artists of the post-war era.

The two remarkable guests, Lily Renée, a sprightly and fascinating octogenarian, and Trina Robbins, a comic book historian and pioneer in her own right (Wonder Woman writer, 60s underground comix groundbreaker, etc.) provide an insightful and entertaining look at the contribution of women in the comic book industry of the last 70 years--a quintessential American story.

Time : Thursday, November 3, 7:00pm - 9:00pm
Location : Museum of Comic & Cartoon Art - MoCCA
594 Broadway - Suite 401 (between Houston and Prince)
New York, New York
