Lucy Knisley (’09) is the Creator Keynote Speaker for the Michigan State University Comics Forum 2018. Last year, our very own James Sturm (Market Place) was the Creator Keynote Speaker. The Forum is a multi-day event every year for scholars, creators, and fans of comics. As the creator keynote, Lucy got to draw the poster for the event.
Lucy brings a lot of experiences to talk about. Since 2008, she has published five graphic novels: French Milk, Relish, An Age of License, Displacement, and Something New. All are autobiographical.
