Meags Fitzgerald at Charlottetown Rural

March 31
Charlottetown Rural

Meags Fitzgerald illustrationMeags Fitzgerald is a Montreal-based graphic novelist and memoirist, comic book artist, illustrator, story-teller, and improv comedian. She will give a public presentation of her work at Charlottetown Rural High School on March 31, from 1:50 to 3:15 pm. Please do not park in front of the school, where buses will be arriving.

Fitzgerald’s graphic memoir Long Red Hair is “a fascinating take on relationships, sexuality, attraction and individual boundaries” (The Comics Journal). CBC Books named it one of the “10 Great Canadian Books to Read during Pride.”

Photobooth: A Biography, Fitzgerald’s 2014 release, is described by her as a “non-fiction graphic novel.” A long-time photobooth lover, she researched these once-vital and rapidly “fleeting machines” in North America, Europe, and Australia. She constructed a biography of these booths through the eyes of owners, technicians, collectors, and devotees such as herself.

Fitzgerald’s comic books include Waxing Moon about the intimate friendship of two girls, and The Village Under the Clouds about an agrarian society, created by “harmonious” gods, which “relied heavily on trade, co-operation and trust” for generations, and which is threatened when malicious “second-rate gods” take over.

Meags Fitzgerald’s presentation is sponsored by the UPEI Faculty of Arts and English Department and the Canada Council of the Arts, with generous cooperation from Charlottetown Rural High School. For information phone 566-0389.
