Unpacking Heterodoxy: Artist + Author Talk 
Parkway Central Library (Skyline Room), 1901 Vine Street, Philadelphia, PA 19103 
6:30–7:30 pm
Free ($5 suggested donation)
Critic, historian, and author, Joanna Scutts’ book Hotbed: Bohemian Greenwich Village and the Secret Club that Sparked Modern Feminism reveals the lost history of Heterodoxy, a secret feminist debate club that met in Greenwich village in the early 1900s. The women who called themselves members were instigators, dreamers, and radicals bound together and divided by causes that are still contentious today. The author joins Artist-in-Residence Jessica Campbell to discuss their shared pursuit of hidden histories to inspire contemporary discourse. 

Organized in conjunction with Jessica Campbell: Heterodoxy and in partnership with The Free Library of Philadelphia.

The Funny Books: Make Your Own Comic Strip with Jessica Campbell 
1:00–3:00 pm 
$40 Public | $30 FWM members  
From the gallery to graphic novels, Jessica Campbell’s work often wields humor as a device to help one come to terms with its darker subject matter. In this master class with the artist, you'll participate in fast-paced exercises to develop ideas for comic strips that are at once funny and revealing of complex truths. From generating an idea to drawing and producing a finished work, Campbell will give you a crash course in cartooning. 

Organized in conjunction with Jessica Campbell: Heterodoxy
