Megan Margulies in Conversation With Jacque Nodell
August 23 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
Megan Margulies’s My Captain America (Pegasus) is a finely wrought coming-of-age memoir about the author’s relationship with her beloved grandfather, Joe Simon, cartoonist and cocreator of Captain America. Evoking New York City both in the 1980s and ’90s and during the Golden Age of comics in the 1930s and ’40s, My Captain America flashes back from Margulies’s story to chart the life and career of Rochester native Joe Simon, from his early days retouching publicity photos and doing spot art for magazines, to his partnership with Jack Kirby at Timely Comics (the forerunner of Marvel Comics), which resulted in the creation of beloved characters like Captain America, the Boy Commandos, and Fighting American. My Captain America offers a tender and sharply observed account of Margulies’s life with Daddy Joe — and an intimate portrait of the creative genius who gave us one of the most enduring superheroes of all time. Margulies will be joined in conversation by Jacque Nodell, author of How to Go Steady, curator of the blog Sequential Crush, and granddaughter of Martin Nodell, creator of the original Green Lantern.
