“Estamos todas bien” by Ana Penyas: the award-winning graphic novel that saves our grandmothers’ voices from the oblivion of history
Thursday, October 31, 2019, 6:30 p.m.
Venue: KJCC Auditorium
In Spanish. Reception to follow.
Through the memories of her grandmothers, Ana Penyas, winner of the National Comic Award (2018), offers an intimate look at the lives of two women under both Franco’s regime and democracy, which is a representative situation for a generation of women –grandmothers now– whose lives had barely been told. Until now. Mixing the present with the past, “Estamos todas bien” (2017) uses photography, collage, and drawings to illustrate the daily life of that time with a decidedly feminist vision.
