Cartoonist Ellen Forney discusses 'Marbles' Nov. 10 at The Seattle Public Library

“Marbles: Mania, Depression, Michelangelo, and Me" by Ellen Forney

Cartoonist Ellen Forney will discuss and share illustrations from her new book, "Marbles: Mania, Depression, Michelangelo, and Me," from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 10 at The Seattle Public Library, Central Library, 1000 Fourth Ave., Level 1, Microsoft Auditorium.


The program is free and open to the public. Registration is not required. Parking is available in the Central Library garage for $5 after 5 p.m. The Central Library will close at its regular Saturday time of 6 p.m. and will reopen at the Fourth Ave. entrance at 6:30 p.m. for this event.


"Marbles: Mania, Depression, Michelangelo, and Me" is a graphic memoir that provides a visceral glimpse into the effects of a mood disorder on an artist's work.


Forney grew up in Philadelphia and has lived in Seattle since 1989. She created the Eisner-nominated comic books "I Love Led Zeppelin" and "Monkey Food," and collaborated with Sherman Alexie on the National Book Award-winning novel "The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian." She teaches comics at Cornish College of the Arts.


This event is supported by The Seattle Public Library Foundation, author series sponsor Gary Kunis, media sponsor The Seattle Times and presented in partnership with Fantagraphics. Books will be available for purchase and signing.
