Anxious in Public: Serious (and/or Hilarious) Comics About Real-Life Tough Stuff

These three cartoonists have won over legions of online fans as they take their truth from the digital to the printed page. Through wonderfully relatable cartoon posts, they’ve told never-ending stories of serious life transitions–about living with mental illness, how relationships develop day-to-day, and how the body and mind transform on the road to becoming a mother. Some of it’s surprising, some of it’s funny, some of it’s poignant, and parts will break your heart. Join Catana Chetwynd (Little Moments of Love), Adam Ellis (Super Chill: A Year of Living Anxiously) and Lucy Knisley (Kid Gloves: Nine Months of Careful Chaos). Moderated by cartoonist Connie Sun.
