“This graphic novel tells a gripping story from the inside perspective of a teenage girl who has both the good and bad luck of resembling an erotic male fantasy. Great read.” — Ulli Lust (Today is the Last Day of the Rest of Your Life)
“Dear Mini marks the arrival of a major new talent. Through some type of miraculous cartooning alchemy, Natalie Norris has transformed a brutal adolescent trauma into an effervescent and irresistible graphic memoir. I can’t recommend this book enough.” — James Sturm (Off Season)
Don’t miss the book launch for this incredible debut, a bittersweet coming of age story that chronicles the author’s teenage experiences with sexual assault, PTSD, and resiliency. Dear Mini is not a cautionary tale, however, it is a vivid (at turns hilariously and uncomfortably so) depiction of adolescent agency in the face of trauma, tracing Norris’s journey from wayward wild-child to harnessing her adult voice after almost a decade of silence.
Natalie Norris will be in conversation with Vermont’s Cartoonist Laureate, Tillie Walden, at Still North Books & Bar on June 27th at 7:00 pm!
