Event: The Secret History of Wonder Woman, with Jill Lepore! Dec 11

“The Secret History of Wonder Woman is as racy, as improbable, as awesomely righteous, and as filled with curious devices as an episode of the comic book itself. In the nexus of feminism and popular culture, Jill Lepore has found a revelatory chapter of American history. I will never look at Wonder Woman’s bracelets the same way again.”
- Alison Bechdel, author of Fun Home

Lepore will speak on the book, and be interviewed by The Globe & Mail’s Nathalie Atkinson, at the Merril Collection of Science Fiction on Thursday, December 11 in the Merril Collection reading room, on the 3rd floor of the Lillian Smith branch at 7PM.

For those not in the know, Lepore’s The Secret History of Wonder Woman is shaping up to be one of the fall’s biggest non-fiction releases, a scintillating and expertly-researched look behind the scenes of the creation of one of North America’s most important modern mythologies! Brilliantly excerpted in The New Yorker, the book is already a must-read for fans of the character as superhero, as feminist icon, and as a gateway to the social mores of the early 20th century. This is sure to be an amazing and entertaining talk!
