You know how you stumble across someone online, say, for example, via Cody's Books upcoming calendar of featured authors, and you suddenly realize you know that person in a totally different context?
For a long time, I only knew Miriam as a regular at Chris's annual film clip party. Last year, for the first time, at the clip party I discovered she was a cartoonist... and then I figured out that I'd actually read her comics for a while (she provided a regular comics feature, "Planet501c3," for CompassPoint nonprofit services).
Her new memoir-in-graphic novel form, Cancer Made Me a Shallower Person, is now out from Harper Collins.
Local booksignings here, including Cody's on 4th Street Saturday May 13.
