Comic Book Group

July 13 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us at the Morse Institute Library as we discuss Rolling Blackouts by Sarah Glidden

Copies will be available at the library, or you can request one HERE.

Summary

Cartoonist Sarah Glidden accompanies her two friends–reporters and founders of a journalism non-profit–as they research potential stories on the effects of the Iraq War on the Middle East and, specifically, the war’s refugees. Joining the trio is a childhood friend and former Marine whose past service in Iraq adds an unexpected and sometimes unwelcome viewpoint, both to the people they come across and perhaps even themselves. As the crew works their way through Turkey, Iraq, and Syria, Glidden observes the reporters as they ask civilians, refugees, and officials, “Who are you?” Everyone has a story to tell: the Iranian blogger, the United Nations refugee administrator, a taxi driver, the Iraqi refugee deported from the US, the Iraqis seeking refuge in Syria, and even the American Marine.
