Alison Bechdel: The Secret to Superhuman Strength Virtual Event Ticket + Book

Alison Bechdel tix
Comics and cultural superstar Alison Bechdel (Fun Home) comes to CHF to offer us a liberating life hack: the secret to superhuman strength is not six-pack abs. Bechdel would know—she’s spent six decades participating in a plethora of exercise fads and trends on a quest to improve herself. In this graphic memoir about her relationship with fitness, Bechdel talks with the artist Nicole Eisenman about the real secret to superhuman strength: appreciating the body and the life we already have.
