Truth & Intimacy in Graphic Memoir

Moderated by Johanna Draper Carlson, panelists included Raina Telgemeier, Dustin Harbin, Etienne Davodeau and joining part way through was John Porcellino. The group started off describing their work, then they discussed how true are their stories, what they include and exclude, how people who’ve been depicted in their books reacted, why they started doing graphic memoir, the most difficult part of doing the work, whether people respond more to sad or happy stories and what other artists doing graphic memoir were they influenced by.
