Short Run is thrilled to host an evening with Boston-based artist Liz Prince on Wednesday, September 10th at Elliott Bay Bookstore, in celebration of her very first full-length graphic novel, Tomboy: A Graphic Memoir, out September 2nd via Zest Books.
Tomboy follows the award-winning author and artist through her early years and explores — with humor, honesty, and poignancy — what it means to “be a girl.” From staunchly refuting ”girliness” to the point of misogyny, to discovering through the punk community that your identity is whatever you make of it, Tomboy offers a sometimes hilarious, sometimes heartbreaking account of self-discovery in modern America.

Prince is a long-time veteran of the small press comics scene, having self-published her own work for about a decade now. She’s also been an active contributor to dozens of anthologies, and in 2005, she won the Ignatz award for Outstanding Debut for her book Will You Still Love Me If I Wet the Bed? (Top Shelf Productions).
This reading and signing kicks off at 7:00 PM. We look forward to seeing you all at the great Elliott Bay Bookstore, located at 1521 Tenth Avenue. This event is FREE and open to the public.
