Register in advance for this webinar:

Miriam Katin is a Hungarian-born American graphic novelist and graphic artist. She has worked in animation since 1981.  She has written two autobiographical graphic novels, We are on Our Own and Letting it Go.

We Are On Our Own, is a memoir of her childhood, detailing how she and her mother hid in the Hungarian countryside, disguising themselves as a peasant woman and her illegitimate child in order to escape the Nazis. The stunning story, along with Katin's gorgeous pencil work, immediately garnered acclaim in the comics world and beyond. With Letting It Go, Katin's storytelling and artistic skills allow her to explore a voice and perspective like no other found in the medium.
