Graphic Content Book Club: "Chlorine Gardens" by Keiler Roberts

Graphic Content is our reading group exclusively for graphic novels and comics!

This month the club will be discussing Chlorine Gardens by Keiler Roberts.

Dealing with pregnancy, child-rearing, art-making, mental illness, and an MS diagnosis, the parts of Chlorine Gardens' sum sound heavy, but Keiler Robert's gift is the deft drollness in which she presents life's darker moments. She doesn't whistle past graveyards, but rather finds the punch line in the pitiful.

"Roberts' work will delight readers interested in humorous meditations on illness and its effect on everyday life." -- Alenka Figa, Women Write About Comics

Keiler Roberts is a Chicago-based artist whose autobiographical comic series Powdered Milk has received an Ignatz Award for Outstanding Series and was included in The Best American Comics 2016. Her first book with Koyama Press, Sunburning, was published in 2017.
