SummaryEroyn Franklin and Tim Miller discuss “Love and Trauma: exploring the effects of psychosis and bipolar disorder on a relationship.” Part of the Comics and Medicine conference.
DescriptionComics artists Eroyn Franklin and Tim Miller talk about their collaborative in-progress graphic novel that investigates the relationship between a patient and caregiver who both have bipolar disorder. Their story of a love tested is illustrated to show two differing perspectives, one real and one delusional, during an acute psychotic break and the years of recovery that followed. A moderated Q&A will follow their talk.

Eroyn’s comics are listed in The Best American Comics: Notable Comics of 2013 and 2014 and has recently exhibited work in New York City; Bochum, Germany; Havana, Cuba; and The Museum of art at Washington State University.

Comics and Medicine is an annual 3-day conference dedicated to graphic medicine, a genre that promotes the exploration of the intersections between the medium of comics and the discourse of healthcare. In keeping with this year’s theme of “access points,” the Library has partnered with the organizers to provide free public access to some conference programs on Friday and Saturday.
