Comics pioneer Trina Robbins appears Feb. 8 at Friends of the Menlo Park Library event

by Contributed Content on February 6, 2018

From the underground comix movement to Wonder Woman, comics pioneer Trina Robbins has done it all! She’s made clothes for Mama Cass & David Crosby, and she’s written stories for Barbie & the Powerpuff Girls. Now this comics “herstorian” has written a memoir, and she will join us to share tales from her life, and also her perspectives on women in comics.

The event takes place on Feb. 8 from 6:30 to 8:00 pm in the Menlo Park City Council Chamber. You can reserve your free ticket in advance.
