TONIGHT! Diane Obomsawin launches On Loving Women

Join us in launching Montreal-based cartoonist and animator Diane Obomsawin's second book with Drawn & Quarterly, On Loving Women, tonight at 7 pm. The evening will include a presentation on the book and a signing.

On Loving Women is a powerfully intimate collection of stories about coming out, first love, and sexual identity. Diane Obomsawin shares her friends' and lovers' personal accounts of coming into their queerness or first finding love with another woman in simply told, expressive comics.

Born in Montreal in 1959, Diane Obomsawin spent the first twenty years of her life in France. After studying graphic design, she returned to Canada in 1983 and turned her attention to painting, comics, and animation. Here and There, an autobiographical film about the artist's rootless childhood, has garnered numerous prestigious distinctions.

Obomsawin has published two books with Drawn & Quarterly: her first, Kaspar, is about the life of Kaspar Hauser, and was accompanied by a short film of the same name; her second, On Loving Women, is about women's coming out experiences.
